Alt-country/Americana singer/songwriter Kim Richey is not stranger to northeast Ohio. She’s performed here often, most recetly in January at the Akron Civic Theatre. Originally from Zanesville, Ohio, she is, at age 62, still a road dog, committed to performing her music.
While she’s no household name she’d released nine albums and had her songs recorded by such acts as Radney Foster, Tricia Yearwood and Brooks & Dunn. “Writing songs is what I do; it’s how I connect with the world.,” she says in the press release for her ninth album, Edgeland, released a year ago on Yep Roc Records.
On it she’s enlisted the services of a lot of musicians she’s met over the years, including some of Nashville’s top roots-style session players and co-writers such as Chuck Prophet, former Steeldrivers member Mike Henderson, NRBQ’s Al Anderson and Pittsburgh singer/songwriter who fronted rock quintet the Gathering Field in the 90s.
She’s returning to the area to perform at Peninsula’s historic G.A.R. Hall. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show.
