Rachael Price and Vilray


met at the New England Conservatory of Music in the Fall of 2003 and became friends. Their duo grew from a shared reverence for the pop music of the 1930s and 40s and its wide range of emotions. With simple arrangements and only a guitar for accompaniment, they perform original works and revive forgotten gems of the jazz big bands and western swing ensembles. Their sound recalls both the warmth of radio's golden age and the intimacy of parlor concerts in a time before recordings. In 2018 they performed at the Newport Folk Festival.
