About The Group

Harpeth Rising consists of a combination of Folk, Newgrass, Rock, and Classical music all blending into one unique unforgettable sound. The three ladies of the trio all hold prestigious classical performance degrees from Indiana University, Eastman School of Music, and Oberlin. But the desire to preform sparked way before that. Di Meglio was brought up learning Eastern European folk, Younger grew up under the influence of family member Cole Younger, who is a banjo player himself, and Greenberg attained her love for music by following the sounds of Stan Rogers, Leonard Cohen, and Natalie McMaster. Harpeth Rising’s new album “Against All Tides”  was released last spring and the feedback has been nothing but positive things!
