Gina’s 2012 release on Waterbug, Promised Land, was top ten on the Folk DJ List in 2012; the title
cut was the #1 song for January 2012. In 2015, Gina was one of 24 Emerging Artists at the Falcon
Ridge Folk Festival, then voted one of three Most Wanted to return to Falcon Ridge in 2016. She is

ChamberFolk: The future of original string music. Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising fuses Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into something organically unique. 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.
2017 - 2018 Season!
