Ivy & Joel Ricci are a dynamic, genre-nomadic duo traveling easily between territories of folk, country, soul, rock and jazz. The Riccis are multi-instrumentalists who marry brass, strings and vocal harmonies with a reverence for simplicity and chance. They bring with them musical nuances of the southwest, northwest, east coast and Texas. Joel is also known for previous performances at Cellar Door and in Port Townsend as leader of Lucky Brown & the Funk Revolution and a number of other PNW funk and soul groups.
Joining them is Iowa-born, Portland-based Nate Lumbard, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has toured the nation and the world sharing both introspective and groovy de- and re-constructions of life as we know it. When he is not inventing instruments or bouncing his newborn baby girl, he is eating clam chowder for breakfast.
