<<Back to full 2017 Side Stage Lineup


Sunday, July 30th • 1:00pm • Side Stage


If music can happen organically, planted in the heart and grown straight from the soul, Rodney Rice embodies the rich tales of life, past and present, through his debut Empty Pockets and a Troubled Mind.

A keen observer and witty raconteur, this West Virginia native blends the slick, smoothness, and simplicity of folk with a healthy dose of honky tonk and country.  With musical influences spanning from John Prine to the Grateful Dead, Rodney carries on a new generation of powerful yet unique songwriting that is truly a standalone gem.
