When you finish listening to Cherryholmes live on WFDU.org, you can point your browser over to WDVX.com and hear Missy Raines & The New Hip perform on Blue Plate Special. They will be performing live before a studio audience between noon and 1:00 p.m. this afternoon (2/29).
The New Hip is Missy’s musical youth movement, featuring a quartet of talented string musicians. Megan McCormick is on guitars and vocals, Michael Witcher on resonator guitar and vocals, Ethan Ballinger on mandolin and guitar, Lee Holland on percussion and Raines on bass.
Missy has spent her career as a bassist with a number of successful acts (most notably Claire Lynch) and has been named Bass Player of the Year seven times by the IBMA. This marks her first excursion as a band leader, with a group of eager co-conspirators in pursuing new sonic horizons.
