Kimes to perform WSCC virtual concert.

VICTORY TOWNSHIP — Americana singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Chloe Kimes will bring her unique blend of bluegrass and traditional folk music to West Shore Community College’s Performing Arts Living Room Series on Saturday, Dec. 5.

The virtual concert begins at 7:30 p.m., and the online event is free of charge.

Kimes, who grew up near Scottville and graduated from Mason County Central High School, defines the next generation of folk-singing troubadours with relentless honesty across her poignant tunes. She was raised attending bluegrass festivals and family harmony but relocated to Nashville in 2016.

With over a decade of writing and performing and a degree in recording industry/songwriting under her belt, Kimes pulls influence from the flourishing bluegrass/Americana community in her Nashville home, as well as from her backwoods, Michigan roots. An inspired storyteller, her organic sincerity is sure to capture listeners at first listen.

“Whether you’ve heard her music digitally or you’ve been able to see Kimes live, her rafter-reaching vocals juxtaposed against her tender and intricate songwriting is enough to leave you thinking that maybe Middle Tennessee State University really does harbor stars,” said L.B. Rogers, a contributing writer for the university’s magazine, “Sidelines.”

When she returns to Michigan, Kimes often performs with her sister, Olivia Kimes. During the summer of 2017, the Kimes sisters played 50 shows across the state.

She is the daughter of Kevin and Lisa Kimes of Riverton Township. 

All of the performances in WSCC’s Living Room Series are free of charge and more information and links to the performances can be found on the college’s web site:

The performance will also be archived for viewing at a later date.
