About Me

I started this blog in July 2012  and someone recently asked why my name didn’t appear on it anywhere!  So here…..my identity is unveiled!

Hello, it’s me: Kathy Sands-Boehmer.


By day I am a mild-mannered employee in a very big Boston publishing company.  Every other waking hour is devoted to promoting music — at a lovely venue called the me&thee located in the beautiful seaside town of Marblehead, MA which is located on Boston’s North Shore.  This venue is within the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Marblehead and has been around since 1970!  Imagine that!  A whole lot of great music has been heard in this great listening room.

I also do what I can to promote musicians that I believe in. For a time I had an active booking agency called Harbortown Music and worked with artists like Brooks Williams, Chris O’Brien, Teresa Storch, and others.  These days I mostly just take care of the Pesky J. Nixon boyz and Jim Trick.

I have also served as Vice President of the Boston Area Coffeehouse Association (BACHA) and the NorthEast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) boards as well.

Enjoy my blog.  Take some time to look over the archives and by all means—-recycle the content and share the word about all this great music!

All the best and more,



  1. Kathy — I just read the David Francey interview. Of course I am thrilled with my friend’s comments about me. I am also deeply appreciative for the question you posed that elicited such a response. It is rare for an interviewer to lend focus to the “sideman” (or sidewoman).
    I get generous recognition from David, always, but it’s a big boost to have such a generous “setup” within an interview. Thanks for all that. Look forward to seeing you soon.

  2. I just now literally stumbled upon your blog and your Quick Q&A’s. This is an acoustic music fan’s dream.

    I had the pleasure of talking to Mark Erelli and Lori McKenna after a house concert they did at a church in Lawrence, Kansas, a few years ago. My wife and I are big fans and try to get to see them whenever they appear within driving distance of our home here in Kansas City, Missouri.

    I’m writing a book about the solo career (AFTER The Kingston Trio) of the late John Stewart (1939-2008). Besides being the archetypal Folk Legend, there is a direct chain of connection between John and the Boston area — via the Kennedys/Chuck McDermott/Wheatstraw/Dave Batti/Club Passim route.

    I’m posting installments of the rough, first-draft version of the essay at 30-day intervals on my LinkedIn Profile Page.

    I’m wondering if you might be interested in reading them and leaving a comment — or even in posting them as they come out on your site.

    This is a labor of love (I’m in my sixth year on it). It will never be “published” in any sense — traditional, self-, or otherwise. There would be too many legal hassles with the publishing companies who own the rights to John’s lyrics, from which I quote extensively.

    Keep up the good work, Kathy.

  3. Great site! Found it via a Google search for Jordan Tice. Didn’t find that post, but got introduced to a lot of artists I hadn’t heard of before. Thanks.
