Harpeth Rising

The Witham: 3 Horse Market, Barnard Castle DL12 8LY

Voted ‘Best Local Band in Nashville’ by the Tennessean, the classically trained women of Harpeth Rising bring an exciting and distinctively new sound to the folk genre 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, 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 reached No. 6 on the Folk DJ Charts and No. 15 on the EuroAmericana Charts. Harpeth Rising’s previous UK performances have included The Cambridge Folk Festival, The Green Note in London, The Purbeck Folk Festival, The Fylde Folk Festival, and numerous village halls in County Durham. Tickets are £12 at the door or £10 at www.thewitham.org.uk or 01833 631 107.
