EGG HARBOR, WI — Harpeth Rising is on tour promoting their brand new album, ‘Against All Tides,’ and will perform at Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor on Friday, Aug. 11. Woodwalk Gallery features contemporary art and musical performances in an intimate, historic barn setting.
Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising performs “chamberfolk,” fusing folk, newgrass, rock and classical music 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. Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship and a deft, yet soulful, lyrical perspective.
‘Against All Tides,’ Harpeth Rising’s sophomore album, is proof that authenticity and complexity can live in harmony. It is an exploration of spirituality in place of fundamentalism, uncertainty as philosophy, and an unwavering declaration that human connection is the ultimate force for good in the universe. The songs, crafted lyrically by Jordana Greenberg and arranged by all three members of the trio — Maria Di Meglio, Michelle Younger and Greenberg — are the vehicle by which the band has chosen to add their voices to the ongoing fight for understanding and respect.
The band’s previous release, ‘Shifted,’ debuted at #1 on the Folk-DJ charts, and gained international exposure, leading to headlining slots at festivals including Kerrville Folk Festival (Texas), The National Folk Festival (Australia), Brevard Music Festival (North Carolina), Musicport Festival (England), and Costa Del Folk (Portugal).
The upcoming Harpeth Rising concert begins at 7 pm, and admission is $20. Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 County Road G, EggHarbor, WI 54209. More information is available by phone at 920-868-2912, or www.woodwalkgallery.com.
