Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture.Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life's work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape.
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.
