An Evening with Kathy Mattea presented by WMOT/Roots Radio
City Winery
Sun, Oct 14 8:00 pm

Twice named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association, Kathy Mattea established herself in the late 1980s and 1990s as an artist at ease with both country tradition and free-ranging innovation, and with her keen sense of songs and songwriting, as a masterful “songcatcher”.  In 1990, the West Virginia native won the first of her two Grammy Awards, earning the Best Female Country Vocal Performance award for her moving “Where’ve You Been,” co-written by husband Jon Vezner.  She is among the most successful women in the genre’s history, yet her creative spirit has led her to explore musical territory extending well beyond its confines.   Her recent recordings have intertwined Celtic, Gospel, and Bluegrass influences with the folk and acoustic music that have always served as her artistic anchor. Her exploration of Appalachian music and culture comes full circle with 2008's Grammy-nominated "Coal," and her latest release, "Calling Me Home."
