Rising Appalachia

“Rising Appalachia is the aural divinity of two sisters steeped in the Deep South flair of harmony, resistance, and poetry” – NPR

Sisters Leah and Chloe, percussionist Biko Casini and instrumentalist David Brown are Rising Appalachia, bringing to the stage a spirit of involvement, reverence for world cultures, the traditions of folk music, commitment, harmony and grace. Professional musicians for a long time, they play huge festivals and tiny cafes, committed to sharing their music and souls with everyone who’ll listen. Genuine global citizens and spiritual travelers, they feel honored to create environments where audiences share in their passion and excitement. Here’s their website, which says more clearly who they are. I’m awed and inspired that they’ll be here at Fifth Street.
