The unmistakable voice of triple Grammy Award winner Kathy Mattea explores music’s most basic human essence through timeless melodies and uplifting narratives.
Kathy has gathered songs and stories of bravery, pride and grief that describe and define the life and times of her home place. COAL, her 2008 Grammy nominated CD, was her first step in discovering this vast and rich vein of music which took her into the lore of family stories. Her newest CD Calling Me Home released this year is a journey further through the rich tapestry of Appalachian music.
Whether performing in a small acoustic band or in front of a symphony, she connects intimately with her audience. Long known as an impeccable songcatcher, her concerts present her new and most recent material alongside her Top 20 radio hits, from the signature ballad “Where have you been?” to the bluesy “455 Rocket” to the iconic “Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses.”
