Tricia Spencer is a Kansas multi-instrumentalist, who grew up learning old time music from her grandparents. Her early life was spent traveling throughout the Midwest, where she learned from the likes of Pete McMahan, Cyril Stinnet, Lymon Enloe, Dwight Lamb, Amos Chase, and Lucy Pierce.

Howard Rains is a native Texas artist and fiddler from a musical and artistic family. Howard plays rare, old tunes learned from friends, family, mentors, and old recordings. As much known for his painting as his fiddling, Howard has painted many great old time musicians, both living and gone.

Together, Spencer & Rains have performed and taught internationally. In their unique and powerful style, Howard and Tricia are dedicated to the preservation, performance, and teaching of old time music.
