HARPETH RISING (USA) SINGAPORE TOUR 2019

Description
We Love Jazz (Singapore) Limited. Aka WLJ SG is a non profit community organisation founded to strengthen the jazz and related music community but also well known for organising/managing music events to impact the community at large.



We are delighted to announce that the U.S. Embassy Singapore has again engaged us as an implementing partner to plan and execute the Singapore stop of an American female chamberfolk trio Harpeth Rising’s American Music Abroad (AMA) tour, February 27 – March 4, 2019. The organisation has worked on the same program in 2017, to manage Singapore stop of Tony Memmel's group.

The AMA program requested WLJ SG to program the tour so the band will have 3 days full of outreach elements such as; (1) local school visit & performance/talks, (2) Music collaboration with local music community members and (3) public performance.
Please join us to experience Harpeth Rising's mind-blowing performances at our familiar locations in Singapore!!!

ABOUT HARPETH RISING (Cintinatti, Ohio, USA)




Jordana Greenberg ( band leader - violin/songwriter)
Maria Di Meglio (Cello)
Michelle Younger (Banjo)

Harpeth Rising is an American female chamberfolk trio that draws inspiration from the music traditions of many cultures, including Irish, Eastern European, American southern, and African music. The band members play the violin, cello, classical guitar, and the banjo, and they enjoy teaching workshops and performing. Harpeth Rising has been touring full-time for six years throughout the United States, Europe, and Australia.

Harpeth Rising’s debut album—SHIFTED (2015)— defined their “chamberfolk” sound and brought their music to wider, international audiences, followed by sophomore album Against All Tides (2017). The trio has toured full-time for six years and performed across the United States, Europe, Australia, and the UK. Each member of Harpeth Rising has a classical background and holds performance degrees from some of the most venerated music schools in the world, including Oberlin, Indiana University, and the Eastman School of Music. This history, however, is only one dimension of this group’s powerful musical voice. Hailing from vastly different parts of North America, each member of Harpeth Rising brings different influences to the band’s core sound. Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship, and a deft—yet soulful—lyrical perspective.
