An Intimate Candlelit Evening Concert of Unreleased New Songs

with Chloe and Leah of Rising Appalachia

December 20th, 7 PM

Sometimes the muse wants to be shared before the art is polished, sometimes music needs a few ears to land upon before being set to stone during the recording process. This evening will be a rare opportunity to sit in candlelight with sisters Chloe and Leah and a small audience for a duet concert as they share unharnessed and unreleased new songs for the first time. This is their first show of this kind and will be a very special and inspiring treat for those who attend and will include a question and answer session about their songwriting process and poetics behind songs they will be recording on their new album. This show will sell out, so get your tickets now, while they last.

Global Song and Expressive Singing Master Class

with Chloe and Leah of Rising Appalachia

December 20th, 12 to 2 PM

Leah and Chloe’s Rising Appalachia vocal master class explores sound vibration and body movement as tools for self-awareness. The space is created to help each participant to embody the physical art of making sound from all the many resonators in the body. This workshop utilizes the expressions of the body through movement and music using a variety of techniques including vocal contact improv, creative sound improvisation, group harmonics, global singing techniques, as well as movement drawing upon Yoga and Modern Dance.

We will explore Chanting, Toning, Improvisational Voice Techniques, and Song Writing practices and prompts drawn from personal experience as well as music rooted in American Southern Blues, traditional roots music from New Orleans, Ireland and England, Bulgaria, Cuba, Appalachia, the Balkans, and more. Global Sound workshops allow each participant to explore their individual voice as well as how our sounds relate to one another.

Come participate and learn to create your own sound palate. Space is limited to 75 participants.


Introduction: Circle up trios, contact improv, creative sound introductions.
Movement: Yoga, breathwork, and modern dance as a way to loosen into the body and vocal chords.
Song-Improv: Combine movement and vocals for full creative interpretation (teach by example)…teach sound specifics and regional songs based on the call and response tradition.
Song-Instruction: Teaching specific songs and their origins. Give participants a few songs to take home and sing/learn.
Final: Cool down tonal circle and stretching, brief chanting and intention setting.
