CARRYING TEAR GAS, BILLY CLUBS, AND PLEXIGLASS SHIELDS WITH “PORTLAND POLICE” PRINTED UPON THEM, DOZENS OF RIOT POLICE MOVED PAST THE CROWDS GATHERING TO SEE RISING APPALACHIA PLAY. It was a warm evening in the fall of November 2016, and the sister-led folk band was performing to a sold-out audience at the Crystal Ballroom, blocks away from protests occurring in the capital city of Oregon. Somehow, despite the animosity and unrest in the streets, there was a palpable sense of joyful togetherness, community and celebration in the theater that night. In the middle of the set, as the band bent a hip-hop inspired anthem into an old gospel spiritual with the words “No more weeping and wailing,” the audience erupted in a long, raucous roar. The concert was offering not so much an escape from the drama outside, but an opening for a way through it.
Leah Song and Chloe Smith, founding sisters of Rising Appalachia, have long witnessed themselves – by both choice and coincidence – carrying harmony into settings of upheaval and discord. Soon after their eponymous release in 2006, the siblings moved to New Orleans to assist in rebuilding efforts following Katrina. There they gained not only a deeper sense of connection to the roots of American music, but also an abiding sense of purpose as musicians. The band, which has now grown to include musicians David Brown on upright bass and baritone guitar, and Biko Casini on world percussion, has settled into its stride and purpose through creating original music with a mission, rooted in the traditions of folk songs, storytelling, and grass roots activism. The band manages to meld traditions and genres the same way Leah and Chloe blend their voices; it’s casual, beguiling, and effortlessly singular.
