Album Notes
“...a band that deserves serious attention.”
John Reischman, John Reischman and the Jaybirds

“...a significant voice of modern bluegrass music.”
- Bluegrass Unlimited August 2005

“... songs and instrumentals that speak of the cost of living oneʼs life oneʼs own way rather than playing it safe.”
- Mike Compton, The Nashville Bluegrass Band

They call New Mexico home now. But they come from the flat cornfields of the Midwest and the misty Appalachians. Theyʼve walked the back roads of red clay Georgia and the ridges of the Blue Ridge hill country. Theyʼre as much at home in dusty badlands as beside whispering mountain creeks. Most of all, they love making music. Music from the heart of the Land of Enchantment. Theyʼre “Raising Cane” and theyʼre one of the hottest bluegrass bands in the Southwest.

Hailing these days from across New Mexico, Raising Cane is Gregg Daigle on guitar and banjo, Don Grieser on mandolin, Aimee Hoyt on guitar, and Rich Sanchez on bass.

The band burst onto the bluegrass scene with a highly-lauded CD, a round of festival appearances throughout the Southwest and a raucous standing ovation as the opening act for Grammy Award winners Peter Rowan and Tony Rice. In only six months, Raising Cane has shared the stage with national acts such as the Nashville Bluegrass Band, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, King Wilkie, IIIrd Tyme Out and Blue Highway.

Raising Cane recently released their second CD, “Ride the Rain.” Produced by Grammy winner Sally Van Meter, Raising Cane’s second CD features 12 original songs written by band members. Van Meter has produced records for national acts like Open Road, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Uncle Earl.

“A good part of the bandʼs magic is its diverse backgrounds,” says one follower. “What ties them all together is their sheer love of bluegrass and a huge dose of raw, energetic talent.”

Itʼs been said that bluegrass was created from a blend of hillbilly, gospel, country/western, blues and “old timey” music popular in the rural South in the ʻ30ʼs and ʻ40ʼs. But with Raising Cane on the scene, bluegrass has taken on a new dimension. While preserving the great traditions of the genreʼs folk roots, Raising Cane applies a rich, pleasing patina of Americaʼs great Southwest with music that spins stories, tugs at the emotions, and brings a broad smile to all those who hear it.

Raising Cane. Bringing enchantment to a grand old tradition.

This is a great album from a great bluegrass band!
02. RAISING CANE ... I have been good friends with Gregg Daigle from The Healers days, when he used to come into AEOLIA and shop. Gregg worked at Rounder Records (He loved Bluegrass back then!) and was a music major at U-MASS, Lowell (I attended his graduation recital performance with Scott Bears - another musical collaborator with Gregg in AEOLIAN KID) as well as a mountain climbing buddy. That's Gregg on guitar on The Second Bardo on the COSMIC PODUNK album from Aeolian Music Works. ... By the way, I should note that this is a great album from a great bluegrass band! - George Koumantzelis

One Great Band!!!
Raising Cane has brought Bluegrass to new heights. Awesome vocals and instrumentals. Bluegrass needs new blood and Raising Cane is leading the charge.

I bet they sound fantastic live!
Another wonderful work of musical magic from Raising Cane! This is a bit of a more mellow album than the first one, with some very rich and lustrous vocal arrangements that will stand out like gems among rocks on the shoreline. The more you hear these songs, the more you will like them. They become old friends, like most great songs do that reside on classic albums that are listened to time and time again. I sure hope this bluegrass band goes on a national tour one day, as I would really like to go out and see them play live. I bet they sound fantastic live! … YOWZA! – The Aeolian Kid
