Tony Rice Unit
We're willing to bet that most flatpickers remember the first time they heard Tony Rice play their reaction was similar to ours -- a mouth opened in astonishment. Such power, tone, timing, and fluidity coming from one acoustic guitar, thus the reason for asking him to return to the Opera House. Even today, after hearing countless great flatpickers, there's still something about Tony Rice's playing that sets him apart. Tony Rice spans the range of acoustic music, from straight-ahead bluegrass to jazz-influenced new acoustic music, to songwriter-oriented folk. Over the course of his career, he has played alongside J.D. Crowe and the New South, David Grisman, led his own groups, collaborated with fellow picker Norman Blake, Peter Rowan and recorded with his brothers. With grace, technical skill, and exquisite taste and timing, Rice is still growing.
