Harpeth Rising announced as ‘Best Local Band in Nashville’
Voted Best Local Band in Nashville by The Tennessean, the four classically trained musicians of Harpeth Rising give an exciting and distinctively new sound to the folk genre. The band will be playing in Cosby Saturday, March 9.
The group met at the Indiana University School of Music and were united – and continue to be driven by – their eclectic musical interests. They began performing as a quartet in Nashville in 2009, playing for both Music City Roots and live in the studio of WSM the following year, and have been touring both nationally and internationally for three years. Their music is a little bit bluegrass, classical and folk.
The quartet has recently begun promoting their latest album, “The End of the World,” which debuted in the top 10 on the International Folk Charts. The album is a special project for Harpeth Rising as it presents songs written by David Greenberg, father of Jordana Greenberg, the band’s violinist.
Harpeth Rising has been performing songs by David Greenberg for several years to much acclaim, and fans have requested this project for some time. Before the release of this album, Harpeth Rising’s touring was largely focused on promoting their second album: “Dead Man’s Hand,” produced by multiple Grammy-winner, Bil VornDick. Some of this season’s highlights have included appearances at the Cambridge Folk Festival, The Frome Festival, Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour and ROMP Music Festival.
Harpeth Rising will be playing in Cosby Saturday, March 9 for House and Forest Concerts, 711 Middle Creek Road, at 7:30 p.m. This eclectic, acoustic house concert series offers both national and internationally touring artists in a relaxed and intimate setting.
Reservations are required at 423-487-5931 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and there is a suggested donation of $25 for the artists.
