Summer Breeze Concert - The Mulligan Brothers

Sunday, July 15, 2018, 7:30pm @ Lions Park

free 

The band's sound is a combination of familiar genres that ends up not quite fitting in with any of them. The instruments are acoustic and a fiddle is featured, but they're not a bluegrass ensemble. The arrangements are stripped down, but they're not quite Americana. Their lyrics are heartbreakingly intimate, but they're not quite folk. Songwriter Ross Newell contributing lead vocals and guitar,  Ben Leininger on bass and vocals, and Greg DeLuca on drums and vocals, together with recently added “sister” Melody Duncan on fiddle, gently weave heartfelt tales of loss and love, blending imagery in their stories as the band easily offers fluid sound

Summer Breeze Concert - Harpeth Rising

Sunday, August 26, 2018, 7:30pm @ Lions Park

free 

Harpeth Rising is 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 (or is it a bass?), 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: Chamberfolk.
