Harpeth Rising to Play at McMillan
City Times Staff
Harpeth Rising, a musically gifted and classically trained trio, with members based out of New York, Indiana and Virginia, will be coming to McMillan Library on Thursday, Sept. 22.
The band forms a mashup of folk, newgrass, classical, and rock into their own unique sound. Members are Maria Di Meglio, Cello, Michelle Younger, banjo, and Jordana Greenberg, violin.
Harpeth Rising’s latest release, ‘Shifted’, debuted at #1 on the Folk-DJ Charts for August of 2015. The opening track, “I Am Eve (I Am the Reason), also debuted as the #1 song on the same chart.
FATEA Magazine has called the album “truly resplendent” and Midwest Record has said that it is “taking back lyric writing as a form… this set is going to blow your mind.”
This constant innovation combining old and new genres of music, technical mastery, thought provoking lyrics, and heartfelt sensibility has earned Harpeth Rising the distinction of one of the most engaging and dynamic new groups in folk music today.
The album has “…lusciously constructed harmonies, the inventive edge that pulses through every track and the unexpected direction changes that keep you enthralled…” – Folkwords.
The show will run from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. inside the McMillan Library Performing Arts Center. For more information, please call 715-422-5136.
