The group Rising Appalachia (RA), Leah and Chloe Smith bring to stage their sibling sonics, ripe with luscious harmonies and deft delivery of banjo banter by two girls who love music as art and soul.

Now, fresh from their month long tour of dates in Italy, Rising Appalachia brings the latest sonic creations of sisters Leah and Chloe to Brooklyn’s Jalopy Theater, May 24 at 8:30 p.m. with neo-soul poetics, remixed Appalachian standards and urban/jazz influenced originals.

With the added talent of acoustic stand-up bass player John Branigan and percussionist /m’ bala Imhotep, the RA sound now also adds a global beat and fuses into a mix of world music, poetry, and soul sounds as well.

Jalopy Theater is at 315 Columbia Street in Red Hook. There is a $10 admission. For more, visit or call 718-395-3214.
