    Antigone Rising

    Antigone Rising puts on a great show, and their excellent musicianship, songwriting and soaring three-part harmonies have kept them a favorite in clubs and Festivals. Founding sisters Cathy and Kristen Henderson have always had the same philosophy, play better than the boys and make sure the fans feel like part of the family. That philosophy plus writing undeniably catchy songs has allowed this self-sustained group to maintain their independence and leave an indelible mark on an industry best known for leaving girl (bands) behind. Antigone Rising continues to play a major part in LGBT advocacy. They are currently in the studio working on a new CD.

    Antigone Rising is made up of unique and creative women who are dedicated to supporting many causes from equality for women, to world hunger to international peace. The band traveled to Vietnam as Cultural Ambassadors for the United States doing outreach programs, master classes and public concerts to audiences in Ho Chi Minh City and the central coastal city of Nha Trang. Continuing as Ambassadors for the United States, they have traveled to the Middle East visiting the cities and territories within Israel and the West Bank promoting peace and understanding through good rocking American music. Germany and Mexico were next, touring and continuing their outreach between shows. The band united with the Push4 Peace organization to promote world peace, and their musical encore was included in a global effort on International peace day that was streamed all over the world through Peace TV.

    Antigone Rising has been touring the Country supporting their nonprofit organization, Girls Rising, (www.girlsrising.org) Girls Rising inspires young women to harness their potential, follow their dreams, and pursue non-traditional career paths. Through engaging conversation, music, and the power of example, Girls Rising programs entertain, educate and encourage young women to become game changers. Girls and women need to see strong, thriving women succeeding in non-traditional roles. Girls Rising outreaches demonstrate to girls (and boys) that strong women exist and have much to contribute to art, culture, sports, finance, business and the world around them.
