    Sisters Leah and Chloe Smith from Rising Appalachia on their roots and the Slow Music Movement Dina Elsayed

 

Rising Appalachia is a band founded by two sisters, Leah and Chloe Smith. With links to social and environmental activism, the folk duo from Atlanta, Georgia, look for harmony in the music they create and the places they go.

The sisters dropped by our studio in the middle of a series of European shows celebrating their new album “Leylines.” We talked about their roots and the philosophy behind the Slow Music Movement. Plus, they performed a traditional Appalachian love song live in studio, “Across the Blue Ridge Mountains.”
