Awendaw Green's April 2nd Barn Jam will feature the popular alt-country band Antigone Rising.
The all-female band wasted no time rising to prominence as their 2005 debut album sold 150,000 copies. They've showed no sign of slowing down since. The group has toured with the likes of The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith, earned a Annual Independent Music Award nomination, appeared in Billboard, Out Magazine, Buzzfeed, and the Huffington Post, and performed on The Today Show and The Tonight Show.
The band has also made headlines outside of the music world. Bassist Kristen Ellis-Henderson earned plenty of attention after she and her wife, President and CEO of GLAAD Sarah Kate Ellis, were both featured on the cover of TIME Magazine's April 8, 2013 Marriage Equality issue (left).
Antigone Rising is comprised of Nini Camps (lead singer), Dena Tauriello (drums), Ellis-Henderson, and Cathy Henderson (guitar/vocals).
They recently announced that they will be releasing two brand new EPs, Whiskey & Wine - Volume 1 and Whiskey & Wine - Volume 2. Volume 1 will be released on Tuesday on iTunes and the band’s official website. Volume 2 is scheduled to drop on October 28th.
