ANTIGONE RISING, the all female Country/Rock band, will be performing at the Emerald Lounge in Asheville, NC with award winning singer/songwriter, JEN FOSTER on Wednesday, November 14 at 9:00 pm. ANTIGONE RISING exploded onto the spotlight in 2005 becoming the first band on Starbuck's Hear Music (Lava Records) with their best selling debut LP. A lineup change brought Nini Camps to the band, whose voice blends perfectly with the signature style soaring three part harmonies of founding sisters Kristen Henderson (bass /vocals), Cathy Henderson (lead guitar /vocals) and Dena Tauriello (drums), that ANTIGONE RISING has become known and loved for. The band's latest CD, "23 Red" continues to turn heads as their themes abound with songs that speak to the full range of emotions and life. The band has opened for such acts as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Rob Thomas, and The Bangles, and are favorites in Festivals around the country.
Recently, ANTIGONE RISING traveled to Israel and The West Bank as Arts Envoys for the U.S. State Department. During their trip, ANTIGONE RISING performed in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramallah and other regional cities, leading community outreach workshops and making music with Israeli and Palestinian musicians demonstrating once again that all cultures can achieve peace and understanding through good old rocking music.
