Voted 'Best Local Band in Nashville' by the Tennessean, the four classically trained musicians of Harpeth Rising bring an exciting and distinctively new sound to the folk genre. With a banjo and a fiddle, you might think they're traditional bluegrass - but think again. Cello and hand drums round out the ensemble, creating a truly unique sound. Their virtuosic instrumentals are coupled with intimate vocals and sincere lyrics. The group met at the Indiana University School of Music and were united, and continue to be driven by, their eclectic musical interests. A little bit bluegrass, a little bit classical, a little bit folk and a whole lot of original, Harpeth Rising is a band to watch.
