Genre-blending folksters Rising Appalachia are making their way to Denver, CO’s beautiful Sculpture Park with support from LVDY on Friday, July 23rd.
This latest run of shows from Rising Appalachia, helmed by sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, follows the surprise release of a new album, The Lost Mystique of Being in the Know, back in May.
While the band is used to being on the road 200 days or more throughout the year, the album was created while the sisters and their bandmates were all separated throughout the pandemic. After having completed a short tour in June, Rising Appalachia will land in Denver with all rust shaken off and a beautiful new crop of tunes to explore come July.
Sculpture Park, where Rising Appalachia will perform on July 23rd, is an outdoor music venue at the edge of the Arts Complex in Denver. The area is known for its iconic, 60-foot high “Dancers” sculpture, which is a city landmark and part of the Denver Public Art Collection. The space hosts a variety of high-profile events around the city, ranging from the city’s Shakespeare Festival to the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk to other concerts with nationally touring bands like Goose, Spafford, and more.
Opener LVDY is a likeminded folk duo, drawing inspiration from artists like Maggie Rogers, JOSEPH, Sara Bareilles, and Rising Appalachia themselves. The duo recently released fan-funded debut album Gold and has received considerable accalim in the wake of its release.
