Two-Time Grammy-Winning Country and Bluegrass Singer Kathy Mattea to Perform at Berklee
March 10 - February 17, 2011
The 2011 Berklee College of Music Signature Series, where world-renowned musicians share the stage with Berklee students, continues on Thursday, March 10, with two-time Grammy Award–winning country and bluegrass singer Kathy Mattea. Best known for blending folk, Celtic, and country sounds, Mattea, a repeat Country Music Association Award winner, has recorded 17 albums and has charted more than 30 singles on the Billboard charts. Performing songs from a nearly 30-year career, Mattea will be backed by a Berklee student band. Mattea's relationship with Berklee goes back as far as 2005, when she recorded a song written by Berklee students with Grammy-winning producer/engineers Elliot Scheiner and George Massenburg. 19-year-old bluegrass mandolin phenom Sierra Hull will perform with Mattea, as well as open the show with her band Highway 111. She is performing in support of Daybreak, her upcoming release on Rounder Records (March 8).
