Rising Appalachia

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.

World travelers and folk sister-duo Leah and Chloe Smith of Rising Appalachia are returning to Colorado for a sold out show at Red Rocks with Trevor Hall and Citizen Cope on April 28.

With Park City Song Summit, organizers have set out to accomplish one thing over the course of September 7-10: redefine the live music experience.

Live performances are a major ingredient of the Song Summit, but this intimate mountain retreat for music lovers orbits around the minute details of the creative process itself—the why and how music comes about, struggles and breakthroughs alike—in an open dialog with the finest songcrafters of our modern age.

The Pure Imagination Festival has added multi-award-winning country music superstar Wynonna Judd to its eclectic and multi-faceted lineup. The one-of-a-kind concert experience will take place in a breathtaking setting: Watson Lake in Prescott, Arizona on May 21, 2022.

Animated attendees gathered for The 14th Annual Gem & Jam Festival (February 4-6, 2022) in the scenic desert landscape of Tucson, Arizona, to be taken away by the audio, escape in the visual, and indulge in a full-spectrum sensory experience—an experience encapsulating even the non-physical depths of community. This art and music festival— with over 250 programmed acts—once again, delivered  unforgettable entertainment, education, and natural beauty.

The 14th Annual Gem and Jam Festival in Tucson, Arizona is the epicenter of the world-renowned Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase, while also a staple in the jam and electronic music festival stratosphere. The scenic desert landscape fabricates a full-on bazaar-of-sorts, pushing past the boundaries of a typical music festival and perfectly coalescing the worlds of workshops, performers, visual artists and installations.
