Missy Raines and the New Hip bridge the musical worlds of newgrass, jazz, singer/songwriter and any others they take a notion to explore. Recorded at the Jammin at Hippie Jack’s Americana Music Festival in Overton County, TN.

Missy Raines is the most decorated bass player in the history of the International Bluegrass Music Association - with 7 Bass Player of the Year awards to her credit . A former member of the Claire Lynch Band, Missy Raines and Jim Hurst, Missy is one of the most popular figures in the bluegrass community, and a trailblazer in her field for as long as she’s been playing music. Missy Raines and the New Hip bridges the musical worlds of newgrass, jazz, singer/songwriter and any others they take a notion to explore. Start with bluegrass virtuosity, add in a jazz-tinged groove and a song-driven sensibility, then dish it up with a hot band of young players. The band moves easily from fun, funky instrumentals to sophisticated songs of longing and hope. "[Missy] Raines continues to reach far beyond the confines of bluegrass with her inventiveness.... Her roots remain distinctively bluegrass, while her originals and arrangements reflect her eclectic taste." --Strings Magazine
