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: Abbott brings the joy - even with "Front Row Seat" – To say that the Josh Abbott Band's "Front Row Seat" is an easy listen, especially in concert, would be a tremendous understatement. The Texas country singer released a five-act recording about the development, joy and ultimate dissolution of his marriage last fall. Not exactly easy subject matter, but Abbott managed to bring more than a... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin boys embrace music – Dave Alvin provided more than just an intimate performance along with his brother Phil on the second of two sold-out shows. Alvin also gave the audience a lesson in blues history. He added a brief biographical sketch of Leroy Carr before the siblings played his song "Papa's on the House Top" and also lent some insight into Rev. Thomas A.... »»»

As impressive as her last album "Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone" was, this much is true about Lucinda Williams: the next album will be as stellar or even more. That's not to say any of her releases are subpar, but the quality (and now consistency) of her output makes her a precious gem. »»»

Many artists find inspiration from pain or life changing events. Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley got his out of sheer boredom, and it resulted in a Grammy nomination. The title track off of his first solo album, "The Driver," is up for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. With Lady A on hiatus, Kelley thought, "It's winter." "I'm bored and I want to make some music." He contacted producer Paul Worley to »»»
Scheherazade CD review - Scheherazade
The 10-year span since the last Freakwater album, 2005's "Thinking of You," combined with the busy schedules of Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin, the band's core duo, might have intimated to some that they were headed down permanently divergent paths. Between Bean's outside band activities (Eleventh Dream Day, Horse's Ha), Irwin's visual art career and both women's solo work, it seemed that Freakwater's well might have run tragically dry.  »»»
