Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.)
Ides of March
by Missy Raines and the New Hip
from Inside Out
Missy Raines launched her career with experimental bluegrass outfit Cloud Valley, then toured the country with Eddie and Martha Adcock. Soon she was lending her bass skills to the Masters (Adcock, Kenny Baker, Josh Graves and Jesse McReynolds). Raines joined Claire Lynch’s popular Front Porch Band, and developed a successful duo with band mate Jim Hurst. A stint with the Brother Boys opened Raines’ eyes to the value of spontaneity and immediacy in her musical approach and now, Missy is stepping out to make a longtime dream come true; creating a fusing of bluegrass virtuosity, jazz-tinged groove and a song-driven sensibility with a hot band.
