Happy New Year!

It has been a fun two years!

Our last concert of the year was December 1, with The Missy Raines Trio. From her tenure playing with The Claire Lynch Band, to her 7 International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year awards, Missy Raines has proven herself without doubt as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist. But with her newest release, Royal Traveller, Raines has stepped into the spotlight as a songwriter for the first time. The album digs deep into Raines’ family life and her upbringing in West Virginia. Featuring an array of incredible musicians including some previous and current members of her live band, and cameos from other bluegrass greats such as Stuart Duncan and Tim O’Brien, the album is a gorgeous look into the perspective, history, and musical influences of one of Nashville’s most beloved musicians, Missy Raines.

Raines now leads her own innovative and genre-bending trio, which is a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana featuring George Jackson on the fiddle and Ben Garnett on acoustic guitar. With a smoky and seductive alto, Missy Raines heads up this trio featuring mandolin/fiddle, upright bass, and acoustic guitar. The territory the trio covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted center stage, directing with her bass every bit as much as she's playing it.

Recently, Raines won an IBMA award, along with the other "first ladies of bluegrass" - Alison Brown, Becky Buller, Sierra Hull, and Molly Tuttle, for their video of "Swept Away. The latest news is that the video has also been nominated for a Grammy Award. Way to go Missy!
