“Hey Monmouth! Kelly Richey here. Last time we were in town, we made lots of great new friends and we’re looking forward to seeing you again! Remember, you promised to be there when we came back AND you promised to bring your friends so we can have twice the fun as last time!!! We’ll see you there!”

Guitarist/singer Kelly Richey has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out,” by Vintage Guitar Magazine. “That makes a helluva picture, but it’s as close as words come to describing the talent of this musician.”

In addition to the Friday night concert, the Kelly Richey Band will be presenting a program to local students in an assembly at the Monmouth High School at 10am.

“It is a real boost to music education programs in our schools to have professional traveling musicians who are willing and eager to visit schools and share the music and their knowledge base with students,” said Lee Wiggins, choral director. “It is especially cool to have these musicians visit us in rural America who do not have ready access to concert venues and the wonderful musicians who frequent the larger urban communities.”

“Keeping music in our schools is an important mission,” Says Kelly, “so please help to spread the word and support music education any way you can!!!”
