“Mattea remains one of Nashville’s most spiritual singers, and the songs she sings about love lost and humility are as fine as any she has recorded.” - USA Today
To celebrate the bicentennial of the city of Frostburg, CES welcomes Grammy-winning artist Kathy Mattea back to Western Maryland. Mattea’s performance will take the audience on a musical journey through Appalachia and its rich musical heritage.
Throughout her career, this West Virginia native has acted as a “song catcher” by gathering the traditional Appalachian songs that depict the bravery, pride and emotion of her homeland. Her Grammy-nominated 2008 release, “Coal,” explored the culture and musical legacy of the region’s coal-mining community. Now, her 2012 release, “Calling Me Home,” pays further tribute to her heritage and allows her to extend her song-catching reputation. Mattea calls the album her “love letter to Appalachia.” There is no better way to celebrate 200 years of the Mountain City’s rich history.
