Leah and Chloe of Rising Appalachia
Sisters Leah and Chloe, founders of the band Rising Appalachia, bring to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, they have blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Leah and Chloe believe that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape.
Proudly born and raised in the concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, sharpening their instincts in the mountains of Appalachia, and fine tuning their soul on the streets of New Orleans they have crafted a 6-album career from the dusts of their passion.
