: Spencer & Rains - The Spotted Pony
Together, Tricia Spencer & Howard Rains have performed nationally and internationally, preserving and building upon the traditions of their region. The  duo are known for their twin fiddle harmony, which is a product of the influence of midwestern Scandinavian fiddlers Tricia heard as a child.  At the same time, Howard’s distinct repertoire reintroduces listeners to the pre-contest styles of Texas fiddling. That same sense of harmony is in their vocals, as well, which they pull from all manner of American folk music. Both multi-instrumentalists, they are steeped in tradition and are dedicated to the preservation, performance, and teaching of Old-Time music. Joined here on certain selections by Brendan Doyle on banjo and John Schwab on guitar, both Howard and Trish showcase the amazing dual harmonies and musicianship that has led to their rising popularity on the Old-Time, Folk and Pre-Bluegrass festival music scene.

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
