Harpeth Rising @ Cuyahoga Valley National Park Concert Series

January 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

NOTE: The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park is working diligently to keep venues open and available for programs and other events during the government shutdown. We are aware that a snowstorm is predicted to hit our national park this Saturday (1/19). We will keep our driveways and parking lots clear for visitors to concerts on Saturday 1/19 and Sunday 1/20. Roads and driveways in the national park are plowed on a regular basis. Patrons should be able to access our facilities without issue when attending these concerts.
We hope to see you at this weekend’s events, regardless of the weather! You may email Chris Auerbach-Brown, Director of Public Programs, at cauerbach-brown@forcvnp.org if you have additional questions or feedback.

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, 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.

Maria Di Meglio plays the cello, Michelle Younger is on the banjo, and Jordana Greenberg is on the violin.  All three women also sing. They each 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.
