Catching Up with Kim Richey

I first met Kim Richey when I was a student at the Berklee College of Music and made a special trip down to Nashville with a group of students. She was a guest speaker at a studio in Nashville’s Music Row. Kim’s down to earth persona and stories of coming to music later in life were inspiring. As her career progressed, she wrote songs that eventually found their way to artists like Trisha Yearwood and the Dixie Chicks—and garnered her a Grammy nomination. She comes to town on Sunday, April 15 to promote her latest album Edgeland and to perform as part of our Live at The Loft series. Read on for our recent conversation about life, music, and songwriting. Read More Read More
Music is in the Air and Spring’s on the Way (Promise) In Brief

Music is in the Air and Spring’s on the Way (Promise)

Music is in our name. It’s in our DNA. Our curators have made sure that we have a ton of great music coming up this spring, from Josh Ritter, Michael McDonald, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, and Melissa Etheridge to name a few. It seems like every week we’re announcing new shows and they’re going on sale to our members…quickly. It is understandable that one might escape your notice (Pro-tip: sign up for our enews to get those announcements). Plus, we are fortunate that, in addition to our own programming, we have organizations that rent our spaces for their shows. Read More Read More
Live at The Loft Brings Eclectic Entertainment To Town Music

Live at The Loft Brings Eclectic Entertainment To Town

If you are a fan of emerging artists and discovering new acts, then you’ll want to check out our Live at the Loft series. This series is a broad mix of world, country, and pop music. March in New England brings with it the promise of sunnier days, and it is also when I travel to Austin’s South By Southwest (SXSW) to seek out new acts to bring to the Seacoast. This festival and conference features thousands of artists from across the globe in venues around the city. SXSW artists are both renowned (Iggy Pop and Loretta Lynn) and lesser known. Stages are curated by a variety of industry names (KCRW, NPR, Brooklyn Vegan) as well as agencies who take special care in helping to develop young artists. Read More Read More
Sharing Stories and Song Community

Sharing Stories and Song

Students from Arts in Reach, an organization empowering teenage girls through mentoring and the arts, met the performers of Umalali and the Garifuna Collective prior to their performance at the Loft on January 19. Performing traditional songs from a community that is struggling to maintain its unique language, music, and traditions in the face of globalization, the Garifuna Collective has made it their mission to preserve and share the threatened music of their community.

My Music Hall, My Community Community

My Music Hall, My Community

Monte & Denise Wheeler look out over the 5 tons of food collected for the Seacoast Family Food Pantry at the Summer’s Fill the Hall Food Drive. For me, one of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing and getting to know the broad array of artists that we are fortunate enough to work with. Artists that are internationally renowned, local, regional, new, or new to me. With the addition of the Loft almost five years ago, we have been able to program even more local and regional talent. I am always excited to discover new music and meet the artists. My job puts me in a unique position to do that just about every week. Read More Read More
