A seductive amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, and rock, recalling the earliest platters by Lucinda Williams and Rosanne Cash.

Missy Raines and the New Hip

7PM

Missy Raines & the New Hip – 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, she has backed greats such as Claire Lynch, Mac Weisman, Kenny Baker, and Peter Rowan. Raines now leads her own innovative and genre-bending band, The New Hip, which is a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana. With a smokey and seductive alto, Missy Raines, heads up this quartet featuring mandolin, guitars, bass, and drums. 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 currently working on their 3rd album for Compass Records, slated to be released in early 2017 — featuring Jack Stargel, David Benedict, and Cody Martin, the sounds are lush, the groove is thick, and the songs memorable.
