Event description

Description

Ben Rice and his band return to Boise after previous standout performances at the 2015 Boise Blues Festival and 2016 Blues & Bones Festival, and a sold-out show of his own in the Fall of 2015. He has been leaving huge impressions on audiences around the Northwest and winning awards for his vocals and guitar playing for the last seven years. In 2014 at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee he left the audience speechless with a raw emotional delivery of his version of “Key To The Highway.” His second consecutive trip to the International Blues Challenge he made the finals in the solo/duo category. Where he was awarded the St. Blues Guitarist award for best guitarist.

More About the Artist:

Ben Rice's music is deeply rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like "fearless," "inventive" and "powerful," and he routinly brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. Ben is as much at home fronting his electric band as he is captivating a crowd solo with nothing but his voice and his acoustic resonator guitar.

His debut on the international stage in 2014, was a landmark step forward in his career from being a regional act playing primarily around the NW to a national and international touring artist. Captivating audiences and presenting himself as someone who has a lot of depth in the various soundscapes of American music. Still in his 20's, Ben is gaining fans all over the world who love his playing, singing, songs, and stage performance. Ben's original music blends Soul, Delta-Blues, Rockabilly, Jazz, and Funk into a Roots Stew.
