Jim Hurst

Jim Hurst Jim Hurst’s unique picking style and mastery of bluegrass guitar wows audiences and is revered among musicians. "Whether he's flailing the rhythm for an old time fiddle tune, laying down a funky groove, or finger picking a beautiful ballad, his playing is both impeccable and creative. Accompanying this instrumental virtuosity is a rich and expressive voice with a surprising range." - Mark Schatz. His solo show, which allows his personal style and unique creativity to come through, is what keeps his audiences mesmerized.

Tricia Spencer & Howard Rains

Trisha Spencer & Howard RainsTogether, Spencer & Rains have performed and taught nationally and internationally, preserving and building upon the traditions of their region. The husband and wife duo are known for their twin fiddle harmony, which is a product of the influence of midwestern Scandinavian fiddlers Tricia heard as a child. At the same time, Howard’s distinct repertoire reintroduces listeners to the pre-contest styles of Texas fiddling. That same sense of harmony is in their vocals, as well, which they pull from all manner of American folk music. Both multi-instrumentalists, they are steeped in tradition and are dedicated to the preservation, performance, and teaching of old time music.
