BATH — Singer-songwriter Tim Rice will perform Friday, Feb. 19, as part of the Chocolate Church Arts Center’s Kill The Chill Winter Concert Series. Chris LaVancher, who was chosen as one of 24 emerging artists for this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, will be the opening act. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Curtis Room of the annex, located at 804 Washington St.

With roots in many genres, Rice’s performances are unique and enlivening. He brings a soulful voice and smooth guitar stylings that make for a one-of-a-kind performance. He will be playing songs from his upcoming CD, “Pillars,” due out this year.

Rice has been a sports photographer, speech pathologist, husband and father, as well as an accomplished singer/songwriter for 40 years. He has taken to the road, bringing his beautiful songs and soaring vocals to fans old and new. With his new studio release, his songs come from life. Stories gathered from his journeys around the world become stories of empathy and heart.

LaVancher will open the show. He writes character-driven songs, from a farm girl’s beauty-queen-moment in a 4th of July parade, to the wild cast of characters in a run-down traveling circus, to the gun-toting rube who falls victim to a young con-girl and her boyfriend.

Seating is limited. Tickets are $10 and available by calling the box office 207-442-8455 or purchase online:
