Rising Tide

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Musical talent abounds in the Pioneer Valley, something that’s easy to forget amid the clutter of the everyday. Valley Rising is here to remind us how much good music comes out of our own back yard. A long list of bands entered to be part of the compilation; only 10 were chosen. Organized and arranged by The Collective Music Group, whose aim is to support local independent musicians, the newest album, Valley Rising Compilation Volume II, is a pleaser. With tracks from Lux Deluxe, And The Kids and Vesuveo (pictured), Volume II is a mélange of folk, indie and blues with a side of hip-hop. You can join the party at the Iron Horse, where nine bands perform to celebrate the CD release.

Valley Rising Compilation CD Release Party: Dec. 2, 7 p.m., $12.50/advance, $15/door, Iron Horse Music Hall, 20 Center St., Northampton, (413) 586-8686, www.iheg.com.
