Missy Raines Trio

Celebrated bluegrass bassist Missy Raines comes into her own as a vocalist and a songwriter with a new album and a new trio. Missy is touring with Ben Garnett on acoustic guitar and George Jackson on fiddle.

Missy was just named IBMA's 2019 Bluegrass Bass Player of the Year! Congratulations, Missy!

From her tenure playing with The Claire Lynch Band, Eddie Adcock, Josh Graves, Jim Hurst, Kenny Baker, and Jesse McReynolds to her 7 (now 8!) International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year awards, Missy Raines has proven herself without doubt as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist.

“Her latest release, Royal Traveller, not only confirms her renowned instrumental status but also announces another first, as she debuts as a songwriter, 11 tracks that both reflect and reach beyond her bluegrass roots, to touch upon indie folk, jam grass and jazz-inspired material.” — Folk Radio UK

With the coaching of her producer, Compass Records founder and renowned banjo player Alison Brown, Missy has stretched herself to a new professional peak. Royal Traveller digs deep into Raines' personal and musical history, with the songs but also with the musicians who join her. A highlight is the track “Swept Away”, which features the five first women to win IBMA instrumentalist awards: Raines, Alison Brown, Sierra Hull, Becky Buller, and Molly Tuttle. “Swept Away” was named 2018 IBMA Recorded Event of the Year.
