The two-time Grammy winning singer Kathy Mattea has never been afraid to push the creative envelope. Her newest albums, "Coal" and "Calling Me Home,” are her most personal and daring. Both records pay tribute to her rich alto and to the folk music of her native Appalachia. We’ll talk with her about the power of music, her fight to end mountain top removal, and about facing Alzheimer’s disease head on.

I have been a follower of Kathy’s music since 1988, I have met her in person, she is so relaxed and very nice, even remembered me after at other concerts. I admire her for speaking up about the things that she believes in, and her concern is so real. I love her presentations on these matters. I have learned so much through her about things I never would of before. She is a great speaker, and believer in all of her work.
