Event Details

Chamberfolk: Three classically trained musicians playing original music, as intricately arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe. Building from the tonal depth of the cello (or is it a bass?), layer in the shimmering sounds of a violin and the strikingly natural addition of banjo to create a sound at once familiar and impossible to categorize. Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising fuses Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into something organically unique. 

The three musicians each hold classical performance degrees from some of the most venerated schools in the world: Indiana University, Oberlin, Eastman School of Music. But their classical background is only one dimension of this trio’s powerful musical voice. Hailing from vastly different parts of North America, each member of Harpeth Rising brings different influences to the core sound. Born in Brooklyn, NY,Maria Di Meglio cello, was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She was drawn to the music of her first generation Italian and Balkan roots, and grew up learning Eastern European folk songs alongside classical repertoire. She attended many classical programs throughout NYC, including LaGuardia High School (the “Fame” school), and Manhattan School of Music’s Precollege Division. Michelle Younger of Charlottesville, VA comes by her modern spin on old-time infused banjo authentically; her family has been in the United States for generations, and she is a descendent of Cole Younger, a member of the James-Younger Gang and the namesame of his very own banjo tune. Jordana Greenberg, violin, grew up listening to the sounds of Stan Rogers, Leonard Cohen and Natalie McMaster in her native Canada before moving to Southern Indiana as a child. She studied classical violin by day through the pre-college program at Indiana University, and spent her nights learning the folk tunes and classic rocks songs that her family plays at the annual post-Passover jam session. 

All three women began singing after they completed their instrumental studies, and found a passionate new musical avenue. They developed their voices and arrangements to bring life to the lyrical expressiveness of their original songs. Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship and a deft, yet soulful, lyrical perspective.

    The Bowery Stage is an intimate 88 seat listening room and musicians tell us that the acoustics provide some of the best sounds they've experienced.  We usually have two 45 minute sets with an intermission that provides an opportunity to meet the performer(s). You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine and we'll supply the glasses and uncorking for a small donation.  Small fruit plates and other refreshments are available.  Performers love us!

    • "Thank you SO very much for a really lovely gig and for making me so welcome -- it truly was one of the most pleasant and stress-free concert experiences I've ever had, and your audience is the best!  So vocal and enthusiastic and dang, they can sing!"  - Sarah McQuaid
    • "I plan to return to Winnsboro, perhaps to sing, or just to luxuriate in a town where there is little, if any, fear or rancor -- and where people are not only civil to everyone else, but downright accepting of one another. What a treat!" - Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary)
    • "This is a magical place, made possible by a stunning cadre of volunteers. Amazing settings are rare.  This is one of those." Hank Alrich
