Since their formation in 2009, Harpeth Rising has been building a reputation by breaking down musical boundaries with violin, banjo, cello, foot percussion, and powerful, three-part vocals. The classically trained group released their fourth album, 'Tales From Jackson Bridge,' in October of 2013, which reached No. 6 on the Folk DJ Charts the same month and No. 15 on the EuroAmericana Charts the following March. While the album remains true to Harpeth Rising's folk, bluegrass, and classical roots throughout, it expands on their blues, Latin, and rock influences and adds in some new flavors such as Texas Swing and Gypsy Jazz. The album has been named on the Americana Radio Top Five Most Added List, the Roots Music Report's Top Forty, Alternate Root's Top Ten Songs of the Week, and Amazon's Top Twenty Hot New Releases in Roots Rock.
