skeleton-keys-cropped2-1024x517Tricia Spencer and Howard Rains are two of the greatest emerging artists in the traditional music scene!

The band came about when Tricia and Howard recorded The Old Texas Fiddle, Vol II. They gathered together a group of dear musical friends: Charlie and Nancy Hartness of Athens, GA on ukulele and guitar, respectively, Brendan Doyle of Oakland, CA on banjo, and Virginia Musser, of Lawrence, KS, on bass. When the band started performing, Emily Mann of San Francisco, CA took over the bass duties.

The Skeleton Keys specialize in early Texas fiddle tunes as well as old tunes from the Midwest and the Spencer Family in particular. Centered around Spencer & Rains twin fiddling, Doyles pitch-perfect fiddle-like banjo style, and the Hartnesss and Manns air-glide rhythm, the Keys create their own unique sound but stay true to the roots of the music.
