Experience Nashville IN BOSTON
Experience Nashville before the trip! Kathy Mattea is putting on a master class, clinic, AND concert this week!
Twice named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association, Kathy Mattea carved out a role for herself in the late 1980s and 1990s as a sensitive yet energetic artist. She won her first Grammy in 1990, earning the Best Female Country Vocal Performance award for “Where’ve You Been". With nearly thirty Top 40 country hits, and five gold albums and a platinum-selling greatest hits compilation, she is among the most successful women in the genre’s history.
“My Coal Journey” Grammy Award-winning singer Kathy Mattea presents “My Coal Journey”, a one-hour program incorporating stories from her family history and her current advocacy for the environment, combined with a performance of songs from her 2008 release, “COAL”. The pre- sentation traces Kathy’s motivation for beginning the recording project, her research into the musical genre’s history and elemental style, and her family’s ties to coal mining culture in Appalachia, along with discussion of environmental and social justice issues surrounding coal mining methods in today’s world.
