Kim Richey Trio CD Release, Darden Smith opens

Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul.

And then there’s her voice. Pure, arresting and honest, her voice makes you take notice; Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, they’d be streaming in rainbow colours from your iPod. Her voice gives you goose bumps. kimrichey.com

Tylan CD Release

I have vivid early childhood memories involving the sounds of Abbey Road mixed with the smell of marijuana smoke and the clacking of Scrabble tiles. I also remember watching the old Saturday Night Lives with my parents, and loving Jane Curtain and Gilda Radner but thinking the news part was really boring. When I was eight, I became obsessed with Michael Jackson, and I’m not sure if I ever got the jacket but I DEFINITELY had the glove and I totally wore it to school.

Fox and Branch family show

Over the many years that Fox & Branch have played together, their concerts for kids and their family members have become a major part of the work that we do. Fox and Branch have played family concerts at festivals, schools, churches, day care centers, coffeehouses, libraries, and theaters.

A Fox and Branch family show is all about audience participation. In fact, we try to make the entire idea of there being “an audience “disappear: we are just a big group of people having fun.

Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer - Child Ballads, Eamon O'Leary opens

7:00pm Show SOLD OUT

Picture this American scene: two friends rolling down I-40 somewhere outside Nashville, singing out the open window. The backseat is a jumble of guitars, boots, takeaway plates from a roadside BBQ, and paperback books. But the song? The song goes like this: “As I walked out over London Bridge, on a misty morning early…” And the books? A five-volume set of The English and Scottish Popular Ballads—the Child Ballads (For the uninitiated, these aren’t kids’ songs—they’re a nineteenth century anthology named after their collector, Sir Francis James Child).
