‘bama Ghost Music

Hailing from Auburn, The Pine Hill Haints has been turning out what they call Alabama Ghost Music since 2000. I’m not sure what exactly Ghost Music is, but I like it.

Jamie Barrier, Haints frontman, was introduced to the Southern musical tradition by his grandfather, and with his grandfather’s influences, he named his new band after the Pine Hill Cemetery where he practiced singing to himself as a kid. Barrier’s Pine Hill Haints now include washtub-bassist and banjo player Matt Bakula, Katie Barrier–Jamie’s wife–on washboard and mandolin, and drummer Ben Rhyne.
