Antigone Rising,all female country rock band, will be performing on the Bridgestone Mainstage at 3:30 pm at Nashville's Pride Fest on Saturday, June 16. The band most recently returned from Israel and The West Bank as Arts Envoys, a cultural initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. During the 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. A truly inspiring trip, Antigone Rising demonstrated that all cultures appreciate and connect to the language of music.
Antigone Rising exploded into 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.
Bass player and founding member, Kristen Henderson and her partner Sarah Kate Ellis (VP/Real Simple Magazine) have written a book titled "Times Two." Released on Free Press (an imprint of Simon & Shuster) Times Two, tells their struggles with fertility issues, how they eventually conceived their babies on the exact same day and the trials and tribulations modern families go through when you and your partner are pregnant at the same exact time as well as exploring the legal and social challenges they faced. The book was released April 5,2011. The book has garnered favorable reviews from Rob Thomas, Cherie Currie, lead singer of the Runaways and Kathy Valentine, bass player/Go-Go's.
