Unity House Concerts Season to Start Up Again in October!

Unity House Concerts is THRILLED to announce our Fall-into-Winter 2017 season, featuring 7 time IBMA Bass Player of the Year, missy raines & the new hip, on October 21, a co-bill with singer-songwriters Alice Howe and Freebo on November 4, and a mostly-covers show December 9 with Mark Erelli in celebration of Mark's impending covers album...and Cover Lay Down's (a nationally recognised Folk Blog published by Joshua Farber) 10th anniversary!

Smoky-voiced singer-songwriter and 7-time International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year Missy Raines opens Unity House Concerts' fourth season, October 21, with her acoustic Roots and Americana trio Missy Raines and the New Hip.

Raines, a veteran of the bluegrass stage who has toured with Claire Lynch, Mac Weisman, Kenny Baker, and Peter Rowan, brings a rich, jazz-tinged combination of bluegrass roots and thick Americana to her newest project missy raines & the new hip, whose 2013 release New Frontier was described as "a seductive amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, and rock, recalling the earliest platters by Lucinda Williams and Rosanne Cash” by ICON Magazine. The band's newest stripped down composition adds sweet harmony and masterful fiddle and guitar to the mix, laying bare the heaviness and light of Raines' originals, from hushed heartbreakers to barnburners to smooth, seductive numbers - a perfect kickoff to a wonderful year!

All Unity House Concerts take place at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Greater Springfield at 245 Porter Lake Drive in Springfield, MA - less than an hour from Northampton, Hartford, Worcester and the Berkshires, with easy access to Interstate 91.

Doors open at 6:30 for snacks and coffee in Fellowship Hall ($1 donation per snack). Open seating at 7:00. Tickets $20 for adults, $5 for students w/ID.
