Missy Raines and The New Hip – *Special Backstage Show*
July 28 @ 7:30 pm
With a smokey and seductive alto, 7 time IBMA Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, heads up this quartet featuring mandolin, guitar, bass and drums. The musical territory The New Hip covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted right in the center of the stage, directing with her bass every bit as much as she’s playing it.
Please note that seating at this Special Backstage Show is limited to 90. All seats will be intimately situated with the artist on the stage of The Holland Theatre.
“A seductive amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, and rock, recalling the earliest platters by Lucinda Williams and Rosanne Cash.”
– Icon Magazine
“Raines is not only a superb bassist but also an excellent singer, with a matter-of-fact, low-key delivery that’s sometimes hushed, sometimes seductive, sometimes channeling a simmering unease.”
– New York Music Daily
“The New Hip, along with bands such as the Avetts and Churchill, add their brilliance to the swiftly growing collection of Newgrass artists that have brought southern music to the mainstream.
