RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Harpeth Rising will be performing in Ridgefield for CHIRP on Thursday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m.
Now in its 14th year, CHIRP presents free concerts by celebrated nationally and internationally touring musical artists at Ballard Park on Main and Gilbert Street.
The all-female group met while studying classical music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and were united by their eclectic musical interests.
The Trio began touring both nationally and internationally in 2010 with performances that 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.
After a discography of five albums in five years, Harpeth Rising’s latest album, ‘Shifted,’ is set to release later this August. Midwest Record has already said the album is “taking Newgrass to the next dimension, taking back lyric writing as an form: if you’ve cleaned your ears out recently, this set is going to blow your mind.”
The trio also recently released their first live album in November of 2014. The album consists entirely of performances at The Dreaming Tree Coffeehouse in Baptistown, NJ and includes both original songs and previously unrecorded covers the trio’s fans had been requesting.
The trio’s most recently released studio album, 'Tales From Jackson Bridge,' reached No. 6 on the Folk DJ Charts and No. 15 on the EuroAmericana Charts.
