Rising Appalachia

PRESS

Rising Appalachia has been voted “Green Album of the Year” by the Huffington Post and Atlanta’s Best Folk Act by the Creative Loafing, and have been written up in Paste Magazine, The New York Times, The Performer Magazine, Dirty Linen, Sing Out, Georgia Public Broadcasting, Anti-Gravity, Maverick and more.  Their tours have taken them across Europe, through the Caribbean, into Central America, into the Indian subcontinent, and across the United States making sacred sounds and elaborate stages wherever they go. They are creatively committed to keeping their work accessible at the local street level as well as expanding to larger audiences abroad, and have continued to maintain autonomy by self- managing, recording, producing and creating, and directing their work. They are greatly honored to do the work that they do.
Rising Appalachia

"Music is the tool with which we wield political prowess. Melody for the roots of each of us…spreading song and sound around the globe. Music has become our script for vision, not for aural pleasure, not just for hobby, but now to connect and create in ways that we aren’t taught by mainstream culture. We are building a community and tackling social injustice through melody, making the stage reach out with octopus arms to gather a great family."

Rising Appalachia brings to the world new sounds, stories, and songs collected across oceans and originally sculpted to embody our human journey, our global community, and the treasures and troves of soul harmony.  Led by sisters Leah and Chloe, the band tears into sound with sensual prowess as stages ignite revolutions and words light up soul fires.
Listen to their beautiful sound for poetic harmonies, soul singing, spoken word rallies, banjos, fiddles, organic bass and groove rhythms, and community building through SOUND. With an array of incredible collaborators, they are joined by everything from jazz trumpet to beat boxing, Afro-cuban percussion to Appalachian fiddlers, poets to burlesque and circus art as their style redefines performance using sound as a tool to spark a cultural revolution and birth a new movement of unity and healing.
Hostess Notes
I have been wanting to see these ladies since I discovered them last year - and lo, so many others have held them close to the vest as well... possibly because the underground truths they so lovingly declare openly and with defiant harmony are a little scary for many. Well, I'm out of the closet and declaring that I, too, work to heal the earth and believe that as the troubadours of old, music spreads that love like a virus.  -Nani
