WUMB Presents, Paul Rishell and Annie Raines



Country Blues guitar and harmonica masters Paul Rishell & Annie Raines are celebrating 25 years as a working team. They have recorded 6 albums together, including the award-winning Moving to the Country. They have performed and recorded with John Sebastian, Susan Tedeschi, Pinetop Perkins and Rory Block, opened for Ray Charles, Dr. John, and Little Feat, and performed on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and A Prairie Home Companion. In 50 years as a performer, teacher, historian, and torchbearer of the country blues tradition, Paul Rishell has taught the techniques required to do justice to the originals while sharing his first-hand accounts of meeting iconic prewar blues legends like Son House, Johnny Shines and Sonny Terry. Annie Raines’ harmonica virtuosity has been lauded by top players like James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite and Pinetop Perkins. While currently working as Country Blues Visiting Artists in Berklee College of Music’s American Roots Music Program, Rishell & Raines continue to entertain and educate audiences with traditional and original songs at festivals, concert halls, and clubs all over the world.
