Global influences, Southern roots, and an activist bent

Description

Leah Song and Chloe Smith, founders of Rising Appalachia, have long witnessed themselves—by both choice and coincidence—carrying harmony into settings of upheaval and discord. Soon after their eponymous release in 2006, the siblings moved to New Orleans to assist in rebuilding efforts following Katrina. There they gained not only a deeper sense of connection to the roots of American music, but also an abiding sense of purpose as musicians. They've settled into its stride and purpose through creating original music with a mission, rooted in the traditions of folk songs, storytelling, and grassroots activism. The band manages to meld traditions and genres the same way Leah and Chloe blend their voices; it’s casual, beguiling, and effortlessly singular. As the name connotes, the band’s sound arises most directly from the old-time music traditions that were passed down from Leah and Chloe’s parents, who often took the young girls to fiddle camps and gatherings in the Appalachian Mountains from their Atlanta home.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Raye Zaragoza, who carries an acoustic guitar and a message, opens. Her quiet yet powerful song “In the River,” written in response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota, resonated strongly with listeners and went viral in late 2016, garnering half a million views on the video, national media coverage, and a Global Music Award and Honesty Oscar.
