Kelly Richey Performs ‘Talk’s All Over Town’ at the 2014 Sioux Falls JazzFest
Described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out," Kelly Richey brings her hard edged blues rock guitar to the main stage at the 2014 Sioux Falls JazzFest with "Talk's All Over Town" and "My Baby's Gone Crazy."
Based in Cincinnati, Kelly Richey is one of the hardest working independent musicians out there, to date logging an extraordinary 800,000 miles touring, and at one point in her 25- year professional career, gigging a grueling 275 days out of the year. Richey started playing guitar at the age of 15. Today, at age 48 and a staggering 3,500 gigs later, she more than earns the title of Master guitarist. She has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out”. She has been listed as among the top 100 gifted guitarists by the Truefire Commuity (2011), and draws comparisons to blues icons Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Richey has shared the stage with such legends as Lonnie Mack and Albert King, and has opened for Joe Cocker, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Walter Trout, Little Feat, Foghat, REO Speedwagon, George Thorogood, Average White Band, Warren Zevon, and James Brown. - KellyRichey.com
