Paul Rishell & Annie Raines
A Homegrown favorite and one of the best and most innovative blues duos in the world, with a musical rapport and a wide embrace of styles, from Delta heartache to Chicago drive, W.C. Handy Award-winning blues duo Paul Rishell and Annie Raines bring their magical combination of soulful vocals, National steel guitar, and sizzling blues harp to the Homegrown Coffeehouse.
Paul Rishell honed his craft in the 1970s, playing alongside greats such as Son House, Johnny Shines, and Howlin Wolf. Annie Raines, hailed as one of the countrys top blues harpists, and one of the few women blues harp players, carries on the tradition of great players Muddy Waters and Little Walter while adding her own soulful drive. The duo was nominated for Acoustic Artist of the Year for both the 2009 and 2010 Blues Music Awards in Memphis.
Kat & Brad will open -- Drawing from 50s and 60s pop, American Songbook standards, and much more, this happy duo channels and fuses these influences through two voices, a guitar, mandolin, and violin to bring you a mixture of original songs and dusted off covers from the past.
