The Ark to reopen for live music!
316 S Main St
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
If Michigan's indoor capacity limits are lifted on July 1 as expected, we look forward to a phased reopening starting in late July with a handful of shows at half-capacity. We’re beyond thrilled to have our long-time friend Kim Richey bring the music back on July 29, followed by perennial favorites The Steel Wheels on August 1, and another good friend of The Ark, Adam Ezra on August 4.
Barring the unexpected (and we’ve come to expect the unexpected lately), we’ll open The Ark at full capacity starting in late August with a fantastic lineup that includes Marc Cohn on August 22, Molly Tuttle on August 26, Lee DeWyze on August 27, George Bedard on August 28, and Paul Thorn on August 29.
Kim Richey is a traveler—musically, physically, emotionally. Not merely restless or rootless, it's who she is. Willing to follow where the music leads, she's landed in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, working with a who's who of producers – Richard Bennett, Hugh Padgham, Bill Bottrell, Angelo, Giles Martin. She's attracted a coterie of top-shelf genre-definers—Jason Isbell, Trisha Yearwood, Chuck Prophet, My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel, Wilco's Pat Sansone—for her critically-lauded projects. She has also sung on records for Ryan Adams, Shawn Colvin, Isbell, and Rodney Crowell. Part of what draws them to the dusky honey of her crystalline alto is the way she writes: to and from the soul, never flinching from the conflicts and crushing moments, yet always finding dignity and resilience. Her arc of the human heart is true.
