Paul Rishell & Annie Raines Nov. 2, 2013
"There must be some physical explanation for the sheer joy they bring to the blues...lots of heat but also plenty of subtle variation under the theme."
-Chuck Young, ATLANTIC MONTHLY
“W.C. Handy Award-winners Rishell & Raines are rousing interpreters of country blues, the original acoustic style that gave birth to electric blues, R&B, and rock. While their guitar, harmonica, and vocals are roiling, muscular, and masterful, their shows are down home-friendly and fun-loving.”
--Scott Alarik, BOSTON GLOBE
Goodtime Stringband Feb. 1, 2014
“The group plays bluegrass, swing, honky-tonk and danceable fiddle tunes by artists such as Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe, Django Reinhardt, The Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show.”
"What a wonderful group of musicians. Great talent, personalities and fun. I would recommend them for any event."
Keith Murphy & Becky Tracy Mar. 29, 2014
“Becky Tracy's fiddling is strong and expressive, whether she's singing out a melody, weaving in a harmony or providing a rhythmic riff. Keith Murphy not only plays superbly on mandolin, guitar, piano, and on his feet (providing foot percussion); he also has a fine singing voice.” Folkworks.org.
“A rich program blending slow airs and lilting dance tunes with songs in English and French.”
