“When Rachael Price opens her mouth and lets loose with her cool cannon blast of a voice, you sort of forget to breathe,” wrote Rolling Stone. This vocal powerhouse and New England Conservatory alum is known to many as lead singer of acclaimed band Lake Street Dive. Other projects include her duo with guitarist/singer/whistler Vilray Bolles, performing original works and reviving forgotten gems of the jazz big bands and western swing ensembles. Last year, Lake Street Dive released Free Yourself Up (Nonesuch).
Guests TBA and subject to change
