Voted ‘Best Local Band in Nashville’ by the Tennessean, the classically trained women of Harpeth Rising bring an exciting and distinctively new sound to Americana music on violin, banjo, cello, foot percussion, and powerful, three-part vocals. Their latest album, ‘Tales from Jackson Bridge,’ remains true to Harpeth Rising’s folk, bluegrass, country, and classical roots throughout, while it expands on their blues and rock influences and adds in some new flavors such as Texas Swing and Gypsy Jazz. The album has already been named No. 6 on the Folk DJ Charts, in the Top Fifteen on the EuroAmericana Charts, Americana Radio Top Five Most Added List, the Roots Music Report’s Top Forty, Alternate Root’s Top Ten Songs of the Week, and Amazon’s Top Twenty Hot New Releases in Roots Rock.
