Nashville’s Harpeth Rising to appear at Mosquito Hill
Green Apple Folk Music Society will present Harpeth Rising in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 21 at Mosquito Hill Nature Center, N3880 Rogers Rd.
Billed by Nashville’s WSM radio as an Americana sensation, this group of four classically trained musicians is making an immense impact wherever they play.
With banjo and fiddle you might think they’re traditional bluegrass, but think again. The cello and various percussion instruments round out the group, creating a unique sound, a bit like bluegrass, a bit folky, a touch of classical, but incredibly original. After a successful summer tour in the UK last year, Harpeth Rising have been invited back there to play the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival in July of this year.
Harpeth Rising was voted Nashville’s “Best Local Band “, and appeared on the critically acclaimed shows “Music City Roots”, and “Nashville Traditions”. Their debut album was released last year.
To make the evening at Mosquito Hill even better, opening for Harpeth Rising is one of this area’s very favorites, the Crystal River Trio. This is an evening you do not want to miss. General admission tickets are $8 for Green Apple members and $12 for non-members. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, May 21 at Mosquito Hill Nature Center, N3880 Rogers Road, New London.
