We are THRILLED to announce the addition of Rising Appalachia to the 2017 Salmonfest lineup! These sisters and their band are a quickly ‘rising’ national act who are enchanting crowds all over, with their lilting harmonies and inspiring prose. This genre defying act shares a timeless and timely message of connection, roots and positive intention. We've had them on the radar for several years and now they're coming to Alaska and Salmonfest.
Led by the collective voice of sisters Leah and Chloe, and joined by their beloved band – percussionist Biko Casini and bassist/guitarist David Brown – Rising Appalachia is a melting pot of folk music simplicity, textured songwriting, and those bloodline harmonies that only siblings can pull off. Listen for a tapestry of song, clawhammer banjo tunes, fiddle, double bass, acoustic guitar, djembe, barra, bodhran, spoken word, and a wealth of musical layering that will leave you called to action and lulled into rhythmic dance simultaneously. It is both genre bending and familiar at the same time. Proudly born and raised in the concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, sharpening their instincts in the mountains of Appalachia, and fine tuning their soul on the streets of New Orleans they have crafted a 6-album career from the dusts of their passion.
