From their musical beginnings at a local jam in northwest Minnesota, Americana band The Hainings was formed in 2004. Since then, their love for music and performing has become a full-time career, spanning over 15 years, producing five full-length albums, and taking them coast-to-coast throughout the United States.
In 2018, The Hainings, now based in Branson, Missouri, changed from a sextet to a three-sibling trio. They continue to entertain at festivals, theaters, house concerts, and more, including multiple appearances at the internationally acclaimed theme park, Silver Dollar City.
Inspired by their Scottish name meaning “the preserving of”, The Hainings are committed to preserving the sounds of traditional Country, Bluegrass, and Folk music. Adding a fresh twist with several heartfelt original songs, their unique sound features strong vocal harmonies and a positive message, enhanced by a love of good coffee. Their humorous, energetic performance creates an entertaining experience for all ages.
A man of many talents, and the most handsome member of the band. A skilled and thoughtful song-writer, James contributes most of the original music we produce.
Rock-solid bassist, sensitive vocalist, and amazing yodeler, Gracie is a top-notch performer. Her sense of humor keeps her band and her audience in stitches.
