Continuing a long-standing and successful holiday tour tradition, Kathy Mattea brings her spiritual and eclectic Christmas music program, “Songs and the Season” to Carnegie Hall on Thursday, Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Enjoy food and beverage before the show in the Mainstage Lounge. The Lounge, hosted by First National Bank, will be open from 6:45-7:25 p.m. and will reopen at intermission. Tickets for the Lounge may be purchased at the door or in advance.
The show, featuring Kathy’s band of stellar musicians in an “unplugged,” acoustic configuration, draws material from her Grammy Award-winning “Good News” album, and from the acclaimed follow-up “Joy for Christmas Day,” along with some newly recovered gems. Also included in the evening’s set is a sampling of her best-loved signature songs: “Love at the Five and Dime,” “18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” “455 Rocket” and “Where’ve You Been?” to name just a few, and songs from her latest Grammy-nominated release, “COAL.”
Twice named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association, Kathy Mattea carved out a role for herself in the late 1980s and 1990s as a sensitive yet energetic artist, at ease both with country tradition and free-ranging innovation. The West Virginia native won her first Grammy in 1990, earning the Best Female Country Vocal Performance award for her moving “Where’ve You Been,” co-written by husband Jon Vezner. With close to 30 Top 40 country hits, including 15 Top 10s and four Number One entries, and five gold albums and a platinum-selling greatest hits compilation, she is among the most successful women in the genre’s history, yet her creative spirit has led her to explore musical territory extending well beyond its confines.
Please note tickets for this performance are limited. Call 304-645-7917 or visit www.carnegiehallwv.org for availability. Ticket prices for the performance range from $35-$45 with discounts available for members, seniors, students and military.
Carnegie Hall’s 2014-15 arts programming is presented with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
