The Tony Rice Unit

. May 2, 2012.

Tony Rice may no longer sing, but he's as dynamic as ever; still mesmerizing crowds with wicked acoustic guitar skills that shift from ambient folk to blazing bluegrass in the blink of an eye. The 60-year-old Rice has a legendary career under his belt, always an integral part of the who's-who-of-bluegrass collaborations — pairing with the likes of Jerry Garcia, Ricky Skaggs and Dave Grisman over the years. He has always been no less than a pure virtuoso, but the contemporary, instrumentally-focused Rice is as airtight and explosive as ever — an adjustment, or maybe more accurately: an evolution, that shows exactly how wildly talented this guy is. $25. 8pm. 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1818. www.theark.com
