Nashville folk trio Harpeth Rising will fill the walls of Grey’s On Main with its eclectic music at next weekend’s Southern Sundays event at 7 p.m. on Aug. 31.
Maria Di Meglio, Rebecca Reed-Lunn and Jordana Greenberg want to promote their new album, Tales From Jackson Bridge, which hit the sixth spot on the Folk DJ Charts.
Harpeth Rising describes itself as “a classically trained group of women with influences in roots, Appalachian, rock, and bluegrass music” – its banjo, violin mixed with cello, foot percussion and three-part vocals breaking down musical boundaries since its 2009 creation.
DiMeglio, Reed-Lunn, and Greenberg met while classical music students at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Within a year of their formation and their move to Music City, The Tennessean voted HR the “Best Local Band in Nashville” and they have been touring both nationally and internationally. Performances the past four years include the Kerrville Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, London Folk Festival, Blissfest, Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Music City Roots, The Bluebird, and ROMP Music Festival.
Critics say Tales From Jackson Bridge offers a modern take – with attitude – on old genres of music such as classical roots, blues, Latin, rock, Texas Swing and Gypsy Jazz.
The trio’s performance at Gray’s on Main will be there first in Franklin. Gray’s is located at 332 Main St., a three-story Victorian building in historic downtown Franklin. Tickets range from $10-25. Reservations may be made at 615-435-3603. The doors open at 6 p.m. and the music kicks off at 7 p.m.
