Event Details

Don’t miss an art exhibit by RPAC Art Gallery Artist, Steve Liker, outside the tent before the show.
Enjoy an intimate evening with the lead singer and songwriter of the band Lake Street Dive, Rachael Price, along with guitarist/singer/composer Vilray, who together form Rachael & Vilray. Vilray, who was Price’s classmate at the New England Conservatory of Music, and Price are both fond of the witty pop standards of the 1930s and 1940s, and both can write fluently and cleverly in that vintage style. Although listeners will automatically recognize Rachael for her lead role in Lake Street Dive, or as a frequent musical guest on NPR’s Live from Here, they will surely want to research these marvelous yet utterly unfamiliar songs she and guitarist-singer-composer Vilray perform together in their debut album. These tunes seem to have been pulled from some undiscovered chapter of the American Songbook. One can easily believe they could have been plucked from the soundtrack of a Hollywood musical filmed in glorious black and white -but the fact that they are all original makes them more impressive and delightful to hear.
