“Tricia Spencer’s own deep family fiddling roots and Howard Rains’ passion for saving
old Texas music from extinction come together in this beautiful collection of tunes, songs and paintings. I immediately had the feeling of being invited into something very musically personal and special. Strong harmonies and nice, tight playing, congratulations on a fabulous project.”
–Bruce Molsky
