Featuring the vocals of both Simon and Emily Jones and contributions from every member of the band, rice is striving to produce an evocative and original show, with flair and drive. “We hope that in any show the audience can come away with a good idea of the strengths and unique talents of each band member.” The performance at the Stone Church will be rice’s debut at such a location- let’s make it a special one by packing the room!The members of rice as well as their special guest Nate Martel have performed recently at the nearby Old 78 Farm Festival in Warwick, as well as Wormtown and StrangeCreek 2018 in Greenfield, MA.
