Article Contributed by Brand + Bash | Published on Tuesday, August 30, 2022

This Labor day the Surf Hotel will host internationally acclaimed folk musicians Rising Appalachia to The LAWN. Rising Appalachia performed in the Ivy Ballroom to a nearly sold-out crowd in 2019, however, this will be the band's debut performance on The LAWN. The holiday concert will include two shows with the supporting band Birds of Play opening.

As world travelers for nearly two decades, Rising Appalachia have merged multiple global music influences with their own southern roots to create the inviting new folk album, Leylines. Remarkably the band has built its legion of listeners independently -- a self-made success story that has led to major festival appearances and sold-out shows at venues across the country. Colorado Folk band Birds of Play have been described as “intrinsically, undeniably Colorado." Members consist of Alex Paul, Eric Shedd, Anneke Dean, and Jack Tolan, who make up a musical collaboration of multi-instrumentalists performing genres consisting of blues, bluegrass, folk, and funk that leave their audience with all the feels and wanting more.

“We are so honored to welcome Rising Appalachia back to the Surf Hotel. I am a big fan and these women put on an incredible show in the Ivy Ballroom in 2019 that certainly left the audience wanting more. The LAWN felt like a great fit for this second time around. An autumn concert under the stars just felt right” said Jed Selby, Co-Founder, and President of South Main and Surf Hotel.
