Marathon bomber search results in Richey show cancellation

Friday, April 19, 2013 – Kim Richey was slated to play Club Passim in Cambridge, Mass. tonight, but the show was canceled due to the search for the Marathon bomber.

Club Passim tweeted,"With Cambridge on lockdown, we are canceling tonight's Kim RIchey show. All tickets will be refunded and we are working on a reschedule date. Stay safe, everyone."

Gov. Deval Patrick told people in communities in the Boston area, including Cambridge, to stay inside their homes and lock their doors while the search for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev continues. Watertown, which borders Cambridge, is the focal point of the search.

Richey released "Thorn in My Heart" on Tuesday and was schedule to play the club with Darden Smith.

CD reviews for Kim Richey

Thorn In My Heart CD review - Thorn In My Heart
Kim Richey has certainly secured a reputation as a songwriter's songwriter, co-penning two number one hits: Believe Me, Baby I Lied for Trisha Yearwood and Nobody Wins for Radney Foster. On her follow up to 2010's "Wreck Your Wheels," Richey displays not only her songwriting chops, but also her rich, often soaring, vocals, and her canny ability to capture the vagaries of love, sex, misunderstanding, contempt and disappointment in musical styles ranging from traditional country »»»
Wreck Your Wheels CD review - Wreck Your Wheels
Kim Richey's music is not made for multi-taskers. Sure, you can listen to "Wreck Your Wheels" while washing dishes and talking on the phone, but it just won't be the same. Richey sings softly, but carries a big-hearted message. She can take the simplest stuff of life and build wonderful songs around it. Take Keys, for example. Keys can be used to lock doors and keep people out. But they also allow others in. "Is it too late now to let you in?" Richey asks, over »»»
Chinese Boxes CD review - Chinese Boxes
Once upon a time, Kim Richey smartly combined rock chick instincts with country roots. And she was irresistible. Not to suggest Richey is no longer irresistible, but "Chinese Boxes" doesn't sound at all like the Richey of old. Instead, she's nearly a dead ringer for the soft and melodic Aimee Mann. Recording this disc at Eastcote Studios in West London might have something to do with its distinctly un-Americana sound. But the related fact that Giles Martin (son of George »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
Concert Review: Not only is Turner traditional, he's popular – Every time Josh Turner reached for some of those wonderful subterranean low notes, which he often pulled out during his enjoyable night show, it was like a superhero applying a superpower. He didn't need this extra advantage to please his audience; he has so many quality songs stockpiled in his catalogue already doing the job.... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.

"Boys from Back Home" is Scotty McCreery's amalgamation of Kenny Chesney's "I Go Back" and "Boys of Fall," which even borrows words from each hit song to create something attempting to be new. It's not new. »»»

Right or Wrong CD review - Right or Wrong
Dave Adkins stepped to the plate and swung for the fences. His monster swing found the sweet spot and delivered a game-winning home run. "Right or Wrong" is filled with hot picking, great vocal presentations and a risk or two that absolutely pay off. If Adkins was trying to outshine previous releases, he may have done so.  »»»
