    Billed as an “Americana Sensation” by WSM 650, this group of young classically trained musicians is making an immense impact wherever they play. The quartet brings an exciting and distinctive sound to the Americana genre. With a banjo and fiddle, you might think they’re traditional bluegrass, but think again: cello and hand drums round out the group, creating a truly new sound. A little bit bluegrass, a little bit folk, a little bit classical and whole lot of original, Harpeth Rising is a band to watch.

  • north-by-northwestAlfred Hitchcock takes you…..North by Northwest!

    “North by “Northwest” is a 1959 American thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason.  This is one of several Hitchcock movies with a music score by Bernard Herrmann and features a memorable opening title sequence by graphic designer Saul Bass.  This film is generally cited as the first to feature extended use of kinetic typography in its opening credits.

    Hitchcock’s cameo appearances are a signature occurrence in most of his films.  In “North by Northwest” he can be seen missing a bus at the end of the opening credits.

    In the film’s story line, middle-aged Madison Avenue advertising executive Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) is mistaken for a government agent by a gang of spies.  He gets involved in a series of misadventures and is pursued across the States by both the spies and the government while being helped by a beautiful blonde.  Not all is as it seems however, leading to a dramatic rescue and escape at the top of Mt. Rushmore.
