Missy Raines Trio

Doors 7:30 / Show 8:00 PM
7-time award winner of the IBMA Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, is considered to be one of the most respected, popular, and trailblazing figures in bluegrass today. A member of Alison Krauss’ first all-female bluegrass band, she has backed greats such as Claire Lynch, Mac Weisman, Kenny Baker, and Peter Rowan. Raines now leads her own innovative and genre-bending trio out of Nashville, TN; a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana. The trio features George Jackson on the fiddle and banjo 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. Missy Raines is set to release her 3rd album for Compass Records this October, “Royal Traveller”, produced by Alison Brown, where the sounds are lush, the groove is thick, and the songs memorable.
