Kathy Mattea to Bring CALLING ME HOME to the Majestic Theater, 3/28
On Friday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Majestic Theater, Gettysburg PA, Grammy Award-Winning, Kathy Mattea will present her new release, "Calling Me Home" , co-produced with multi-Grammy-winner Gary Paczosa. It's a collection of songs that celebrates the Appalachian culture of her native West Virginia, and expands the vocabulary of acoustic roots music that has always served as her artistic center. APPALACHIAN (definition): of a wild and beautiful mountain land, a genre of distinctly American music, and for many, the deep roots of family. For Kathy Mattea, it also represents an essential piece of her musical education and heritage.
"Kathy Mattea is the heart of country music & the soul of Appalachian folk tradition. She remains one of Nashville's most spiritual singers, and the songs she sings about love lost and humility are as fine as any ever recorded", said Jeffrey Gabel, Majestic Theater's Founding Executive Director.
Kathy has gathered songs and stories of bravery, pride and grief that further define and describe the life and times of her home place. 2008's Grammy nominated COAL was her first step to discovering this vast and rich genre of music that producer Marty Stuart allowed was "in her blood," taking her back to the lore of family stories and to her place and her people.
Kathy's concert also presents some of her Top 20 radio hits: from the signature ballad "Where've You Been?" to the bluesy "455 Rocket" to the iconic "Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses." Long known as an impeccable songcatcher, her 17 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences, and have garnered multiple CMA, ACM, and Grammy Awards.
