After their barnburning debut at DCA in 2013, genre-bending sister band Rising Appalachia returns. Though they classify their music as “progressive Appalachian groove,” Rising Appalachia is impossible to pigeonhole, mixing traditional folk songs with soul music, spoken word poetry, and even beatboxing. National Public Radio calls the resulting musical blend “aural divinity.” Passionate and enthralling, Rising Appalachia centers on multi-instrumentalist sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, who wrap their haunting vocals around accompaniment by banjo, fiddle, drums, kalimba, djembe, spoons, and washboard, merging a broad array of world music traditions with their own deep Appalachian roots.
