Twice named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association, Kathy Mattea carved out a role for herself in the late 1980’s and 1990’s as a sensitive yet energetic artist at ease both with country tradition and free-ranging innovation. 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.

Band members include: Bill Cooley, guitar; Eamonn O’Rourke, fiddle, mandolin, vocals; David Spicher, bass, vocals.
