Featured this week: Harpeth Rising. Maria Di Meglio, Michele Younger and Jordana Greenberg are the acoustic trio Harpeth Rising. They are all classically trained musicians (graduates of the Eastman School of Music, Oberlin, and Indiana University). They practice what they call chamber-folk. They further define that as original music combining elements of Americana, modern folk, medieval European balladry and Appalachian dance tunes. The group’s name is from the Harpeth River in Tennessee, which catastrophically overflowed its banks in 2010.

We’ll feature music from their numerous recordings, from 2010’s self-titled debut release through 2017’s Against All Tides

Each week the best new releases are featured along with interview and performance sessions from our Studio-A. Past sessions have included Rodney Crowell, Amy Ray, Peter Mulvey, Sam Bush, Jeff Black, Mary Gauthier, and many others.
