Savannah Music Festival: Kathy Mattea

Airs Thursday, November 28 at 8 p.m. Though her childhood was steeped in the culture of mining and Appalachia, Kathy Mattea wasn't really exposed to much traditional mountain music. But after the 2006 Sago mining disaster in her home state of West Virginia, she took her collection of mining and mountain songs and embarked on a project that literally changed her life. Tune in to this episode for a 2010 SMF performance by Kathy Mattea at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts.
