Kathy MatteaTwo-time Grammy winner Kathy Mattea brings her gorgeous alto and her vast songbook to the Freight for an intimate evening of traditional and contemporary American folk and country songs. She grew up in West Virginia, signed her first record deal in Nashville in 1983, and scored her first hit in 1986 with “Love at the Five and Dime.” Since then, she’s topped the Billboard Magazine country chart four times, with songs like “Goin’ Gone” and “Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses.” Her 18th and latest album, Calling Me Home, pays tribute to her Appalachian roots, covering classics by Hazel Dickens, Alice Gerrard, and Jean Ritchie. “It presents even the most historic of these songs as timeless and ever present,” says allmusic.com, calling the album “confident, powerful, and beautiful.”
 
Kathy has won multiple awards from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association, as well as Grammy awards for Best Country Vocal Performance and Best Southern, Country, or Bluegrass Gospel Album. She has known great commercial success, but these days her music is digging even deeper. Come for the rich, soulful voice and the eloquent songs that will linger in your mind long after the show is over!
