“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.”
The Skeleton Keys, (2017) Spencer & Rains and the Old Time Tiki Parlour present seventeen tracks of old time music, each song collaboratively illustrated by Tricia and Howard in a full color, 40-page book, bound in a beautiful, 7.25”x5.5” letter press cover. The recording also features Charlie & Nancy Hartness on uke and guitar respectively, Brendan Doyle on banjo, and Emily Mann on bass.
