With a banjo and fiddle, you might think they’re traditional bluegrass, but think again: cello and hand drums round out the group, creating a truly new sound. A little bit bluegrass, a little bit folk, a little bit classical and whole lot of original, Harpeth Rising is a band to watch. Billed as an “Americana Sensation” by WSM 650, this group of four young classically trained musicians is making an immense impact wherever they play. This quartet brings an exciting and totally distinctive sound to the Americana genre. (www.harpethrising.com)
