Rachael & Vilray pairs Rachael Price, singer of the popular band Lake Street Dive, with her mysterious compadre Vilray, whom she met at the New England Conservatory of Music in 2003, long before Lake Street Dive took off. The two share a love for the pop music of the ’30s and the ’40s. Their long-running duo project features originals as well as standards and hidden gems of the era, performed in a minimalist guitar and voice setting.
Rachael & Vilray perform at Club Helsinki Hudson (a venue instrumental in Lake Street Dive’s rise) on Wednesday, February 27. Canadian singer/songwriter Taylor Ashton opens. Tickets cost $25 and $35.
