ABOUT THE GUEST

Kathy Mattea carved out a role for herself as a sensitive yet energetic artist at ease both with country tradition and free-ranging innovation.

The West Virginia native is a two-time Grammy Award-winning singer and was twice named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association. Her recent recordings have intertwined Celtic, gospel, and bluegrass influences with the folk and acoustic music that have always served as her artistic anchor.

An early spokesperson and advocate for AIDS awareness and research, Matteas’s long history of activism has led her to bring public attention to several current environmental issues: as a grass-roots presenter of The Climate Project’s global warming slideshow, and in efforts to curtail mountaintop removal coal mining in her native Appalachia.
