A GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter is set to make her return to Shetland this week.
Kim Richey will perform at The String in Lerwick on Wednesday night, with support coming from local songsmith Arthur Nicholson.
The Nashville musician first performed in Shetland at Mareel last year while touring with Gretchen Peters.
Richey said: “I can’t wait to get back to Lerwick. The audience was great. It is such a beautiful and inspiring place to play.”
Last year she released Edgeland, her first album in five years, which features writing contributions and instrumentation from Chuck Prophet and Pat McLaughlin.
The 61-year-old has also written hits for artists like Trisha Yearwood, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Jim Lauderdale.
