Three classically trained musicians playing original music, as intricately arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe.

Building from the tonal depth of the cello (or is it a bass?), layer in the shimmering sounds of a violin and the strikingly natural addition of banjo to create a sound at once familiar and impossible to categorize.

Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising fuses Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into something organically unique. The three musicians each hold classical performance degrees from some of the most venerated schools in the world: Indiana University, Oberlin, Eastman School of Music.


Harpeth Rising will perform in Waynesville at the Strand Theatre on Friday, February 17th at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at For more information, call 828-283-0079. The Strand Theatre is located at 38 N Main St, Waynesville, NC 28786.
