About the Event
Missy Raines Trio - Based out of Nashville, TN, Missy Raines is considered to be one of the most respected, popular, and trailblazing figures in bluegrass today. A seven-time winner of the IBMA Bass player of the year award, and a member of Allison 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 which is a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana. With a smoky and seductive alto, Missy Raines heads up this trio featuring mandolin/fiddle, upright bass, and acoustic guitar. The territory The New Hip 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 and the New Hip are set to release their 3rd album for Compass Records this Summer, produced by Alison Brown, where the sounds are lush, the groove is thick, and the songs memorable.
Terry Klein is a songwriter’s songwriter. His debut record, Great Northern, was produced by Walt Wilkins. Great Northern appeared on multiple 2017 Ten-Best lists and garnered praise from Rodney Crowell and Mary Gauthier. Klein and Wilkins have teamed up again for Tex, which is out now. Tex covers a lot of physical and emotional ground: from West Texas to Central Asia, from anger and depression to hope and near-exultation. He draws inspiration from his musical heroes like John Prine and Bruce Springsteen, but also from literature, film, and painting. Terry is a recovering lawyer and he lives with his family in Austin, Texas.
