Grammy Winning Country Artist Returns to Memphis
The On Stage at the Halloran Centre series welcomes Kathy Mattea on Friday, February 17th at 7:30 PM. Kathy Mattea's Acoustic Living Room featuring guitarist Bill Cooley will give the audience an unforgettable night of songs and stories in an unrivaled listening atmosphere.
GRAMMY® Award-winning singer Kathy Mattea and her longtime collaborator, guitarist Bill Cooley, have shared one of Nashville's richest musical partnerships for over two decades. The duo meets as old friends, welcoming you into The Acoustic Living Room to share songs and stories near and dear to their hearts - including Kathy's beloved classics such as "18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses," "Where've You Been?" and many other hits, plus a handful of more eclectic and often requested tunes from her extensive catalogue, and a sprinkling of brand new material, all reinterpreted for the duo format. Her 18 albums are woven through with bluegrass, gospel, and Celtic influences, and have garnered multiple CMA, ACM, and GRAMMY® Awards. A genuine storyteller, Kathy draws inspiration from her Appalachian roots and is a torchbearer for often overlooked musical legacies like those of Hazel Dickens and Jean Ritchie. Her most recent album, Calling Me Home, is 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.
