Check Out High & Rising’s Latest Release – Bones

This song is about the legacy of a homeless man known as Bones who lived on Rice Street, of St. Paul, Minnesota. Bones’ story is of a kind man who was happy with very little and his selfless contributions to the community he lived in. Hopefully, this inspires us all to be thankful for what we have and for the community that each of us belongs to, small or large.

Once again we worked with the great Kenny Leiser who produced, engineered and mixed it. This song also features St. Paul’s very own, Chris Castino (of The Big Wu) on electric guitar and David C. Lynch (from Horseshoes & Hand Grenades) on Harmonica.

100% of the online income generated from this song will be donated to a foundation recommended by his friends and family that directly helps the homeless community on Rice Street, and around St. Paul. Please feel free to make a donation directly here: (

Out of the northern midwest and the banks of the mighty Mississippi River grew this “Groovy Grass” band of music makers. High & Rising most often plays as a trio, with a unique combination of instruments that bring a fresh groovy sound to the Bluegrass & Folk American scene.
