Paul Rishell and Annie Raines and Mojo Rodeo, sponsored by Temple Isaiah Brotherhood
NOTE: This show will be at the Parish hall of St. Brigid church, 1995 Mass Ave, Lexington, MA.
Since 1992 Paul Rishell & Annie Raines have been hailed as one of the worlds best blues duos. They have recorded 6 albums together including the W.C. Handy Award-winning Moving to the Country (2000), and received numerous award nominations from the Blues Foundation. They have performed and recorded with John Sebastian, Susan Tedeschi, Pinetop Perkins and Rory Block. They have opened for Ray Charles, Dr. John, and Little Feat, and performed on international radio and TV shows including Late Night with Conan OBrien and A Prairie Home Companion. They continue to perform American roots music and their own compositions at festivals, concert halls, and clubs all over the world.
Paul Rishell and Annie Raines's sixth project together, Talking Guitar, was released in 2012 and received 2 Nominations for the Blues Foundation's Blues Music Awards. It features Paul returning to the bare essence of country blues, with stunning solo performances of gems by Lead Belly, Blind Boy Fuller, Skip James and others, with Annie joining in on a few tunes. It is stark, stripped down and intimate.
Both are teachers, Paul on blues guitar and Annie on blues mouth harp. As performers they combine their consummate musicianship with a deep knowledge of blues history and an easy-going, humorous style.
Paul and Annie will be bringing their full 5-6 band, Mojo Rodeo, to our concert. This is a rare opportunity since they most often perform as a duo. Don't miss this one!
