Arts / Richey returns for intimate Lerwick gig

Kim Richey.

TWICE Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Kim Richey is back in Shetland for an intimate solo acoustic show in Lerwick next week.

The American performer will play in the upstairs room at the Dowry on Tuesday night (13 September) to kick off her UK tour, coming off the back of a fortnight-long stint as a special guest for Gretchen Peters and her band.

“I cannot wait to be back to play again in Lerwick,” Richey said.

“It is definitely one of my most favourite places – I couldn’t ask for a better audience in a lovelier setting.”

Opening on the night will be Sheila Duncan, who has regularly included songs written by Richey in her sets over the years.

“I’ve been a huge fan of Kim Richey since her first self-titled album back in 1995, having first discovered her songs, such as ‘Believe Me Baby I Lied’, through Trisha Yearwood,” she said.

Richey has written hits for high profile commercial artists including Trisha Yearwood, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Jim Lauderdale.

She released the highly-rated Edgeland LP in 2018, followed by A Long Way Back – a critically-acclaimed reimagining of the songs from her 1999 album Glimmer.

A limited number of tickets to see Kim Richey at the Dowry, priced at £20, are available online.
