Album Notes

Spencer & Rains play old time music. Tricia Spencer is a Kansas fiddler who grew up learning the tradition of old-time music from her Grandparents. At an early age, she was perched up on some stage tapping her foot to the beat of fiddles, banjos, mandolins and guitars. While growing up, her free time was spent traveling to festivals and fiddling contest throughout the Midwest and hanging around listening and learning from Pete McMahan, Cyril Stinnet, Lymon Enloe, Dwight Lamb, Amos Chase, and Lucy Pierce. Tricia is multi-instrumentalist who has studied with some of the great masters in old-time and is highly sought after as a performer, dance fiddler, and instructor. Howard Rains is a native Texas artist and fiddler living in both Austin, TX and Lawrence, KS whose twin obsessions are painting and playing traditional American fiddle music. Howard plays rare, old tunes learned from friends, family and old recordings. His release “The Old Texas Fiddle” reintroduces listeners to the pre-contest styles of Texas fiddling. The New York Times has called Howard “an authority on old Texas-style fiddling.” As much known for his painting as his fiddling, Howard has painted many of great old time musicians, both living and gone.
Howard Rains in the New York Times:
“Rains has established himself as an authority on old Texas-style fiddling with his recently released album The Old Texas Fiddle…”
–Michael Hoinski, New York Times

Spencer & Rains in No Depression:
“The Old Man and The Old Woman is an Old Time Music gem”
–Ernie Hill, No Depression

Spencer & Rains in Kith Folk:
” At times, it doesn’t even seem like old-time string band music, hinting at things older and murkier in the depths of the old-time pool.”
–Devon Leger, Kith Folk
