World Muzak Hillbilly’s

RISING APPALACHIA’s Leah and Chloe Smith grew up in the bosom of the Southern Appalachian music renaissance. Born to a fiddlin’ mother and a guitar pickin’ father, they were raised with old-time melodies and contra dances as their lullabies long before mention of the sound tracks of Oh Brother Where Art Thou and Cold Mountain. Now, as young women, they have coddled that same Appalachian tradition as truly their own, and continued to shape it and help it grow through music and song. Their simple eerie banjo tunes and effortless sister harmonies are compared to that of Hazel Dickens, Alice Gerrard and Gillian Welch. With an occasional fiddle or djembe, they offer a fresh, raw approach to a beautiful old tradition. They have traveled extensively, from Puerto Rico to Holland to Spain, offering their music as a gift, as they are continuing to use their rich Appalachian tradition as a way to connect cultures. Having just cut their first full length CD, Rising Appalachia, they are ready to take the folk music community by storm.
