Mountain Heart, Tony Rice

When: Fri., Oct. 29, 8 p.m. 2010

Clean, fast-paced bluegrass has the power to compel listeners into submission. Mountain Heart wields that power. Guitar shakes, fiddle darts, banjo reels. Over a traditional bluegrass base, the sextet combines country-rock vocals and jazz-tinged instrumental solos that can transform stiff shots of bluegrass into smoother extended jams. Playing alongside the band is flatpicking legend Tony Rice. No stranger to exploring and breaking the boundaries of bluegrass, Rice has unconscionable speed and melodicism that weave him a well-deserved crown. Show up an hour ahead of time for a talk led by Mountain Heart. —Andrew Ritchey
