With a smoky and seductive alto, Missy Raines heads up her own innovative and genre-bending trio out of Nashville, Tennesee; a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana. The trio features expat kiwi George Jackson on fiddle and banjo, and Ben Garnett on acoustic guitar.

Hailing from West Virginia, Missy Raines was a member of Alison Krauss’ first all-female bluegrass band and has backed greats such as Claire Lynch, Mac Weisman, Kenny Baker, and Peter Rowan.

In 1998, Raines became the first woman to win International Bluegrass Music Association’s Bass Player of the Year award and subsequently went on to win the title more often than any other bass player in the history of the organization – male or female – proving without doubt her status as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist.
