Raine Hamilton is a classical violinist and musicologist, or as they describe it: part prairie songstress, part storyweaver. Hamilton is the driving force behind a trio specializing in resonant acoustic chamber folk. Their music seamlessly blends the classical tradition of string quartet arrangements with the organic essence of a singer-songwriter. For them, each song comes with its own narrative, sharing with it a touch of humour and grace.
Their latest endeavour, the full-length album Brave Land (2021-22), explores a thematic landscape of mountains, symbolizing courage, wisdom, and an otherworldly connection. Joined by Raine is special guest (and sister) Peggy Hamilton on the Irish harp. Together, they grew up playing traditional tunes on Irish harp and fiddle, adding the telltale long-ringing harp lustre to Raine’s original songs and several tried and true tunes.
