Conversations with Rising Appalachia


Sonic Heart presents 'Conversations with Rising Appalachia'

Join USA artists/activists, Rising Appalachia for an intimate conversation in music, life, and the role of art in the environmental and social justice movements. They will weave conversations, questions from the audience and acoustic songs into a natural off stage experience.

​Guests can engage with the band about their music, mission, and create meaningful dialogue about important issues that inspire. The intention is to create a two-way dialog that feels fulfilling to both band and guests alike, creating more connection between the music and the performers themselves, and to activate all participants. 

Doors open 7pm for a 7.30pm start

Food and Drink will be available at this event from The Depot Collective Café.

A portion of Rising Appalachia merchandise sales will go to The Joinery and we are also accepting donations on their behalf at this event + Rising Appalachia’s Adelaide concert (at Church of the Trinity, 318 Goodwood Rd, Clarence Park) the next night: Friday, Jan 19.  Bundled ‘Conversation & Concert Tickets also available’. 

* Limited allocation of earlybird tix available:

Earlybird : Conversation OR Concert $30+BF / Conversation + Concert Bundle $55+BF
General : Conversation OR Concert $40+BF / Conversation + Concert Bundle $75 + BF



Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture.  Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. 

Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape....

AND we are blessed to have them here in Adelaide on their first Australian tour after they headline at Woodford Folk Fest!

Harvesting a blend of folk/world/roots music as well as a vibe all their own, Rising Appalachia use a variety of indigenous and traditional instruments and soaring voices to create mesmerizing, magical and unique music that has garnered them a growing audience worldwide.

Sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith along with percussionist Biko Casini and multi-instrumentalist David Brown form a quartet that transcends the genre of roots music as well as promoting a thread of community with environmental and social activism.
