Spring Concert Series Bowling Green UU Church 2033 Nashville Rd.
With their latest album debuted in the Top Ten on the International Folk Charts, 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 an eclectic array of percussion round out the ensemble, creating a truly unique sound. Their virtuosic instrumentals are coupled with intimate vocals and powerful lyrics. 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, and were named the 'Best Local Band in Nashville' by The Tennessean and played live on WSM and Music City Roots the following year. Harpeth Rising's members now call Bowling Green, Nashville, and Memphis home. Before they began touring full-time, two of the band's members, Jordana Greenberg and Rebecca Reed-Lunn, were also music professors at Western Kentucky University. The group returned to Western's campus last year as soloists for a performance of The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass with the Western Kentucky University Choral Society. 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. Harpeth Rising will be performing in Bowling Green on April 6th at the Spring Concert Series held at the Bowling Green UU Church (2033 Nashville Rd.). This will be the first concert of this new series which promises to bring a wealth of original Americana music to Bowling Green and the surrounding community.
