About The Hainings
From their musical beginnings at a local jam in northwest Minnesota, Americana band The Hainings was formed in 2004. Their love for music and performing quickly became a full-time career, spanning over 16 years, producing five full-length albums, and taking them coast-to-coast throughout the United States.
The Hainings, relocated to Branson, Missouri in 2011, and changed from a sextet to a three-sibling trio in 2018. After 16+ years of traveling, a marriage in 2020 changed their course and life has now taken the siblings in different directions. Although performing together is no longer possible, they have continued to release music digitally.
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. Continuing that legacy, their music remains available in the store below and also on all streaming platforms.
