5 Questions with Kathy Mattea
By: Bill Lynch

Helping to celebrate West Virginia’s birthday (and coincidentally her own), country star Kathy Mattea returns to Charleston for a special FestivALL Live on the Levee show Friday that also features country harmonica legend and fellow West Virginia native Charlie McCoy.
McCoy opens the free concert at 6:30 p.m., and Mattea takes the stage for two sets at 7:30 p.m.

Gazz spoke with Mattea about coming back to the state, what she misses when she’s away and what the rest of her summer looks like.

Q: How great is it to be playing in West Virginia for the state’s 150th birthday?

A:“I think it’s going to be really fun. I’m sort of borderline nervous about it. I want to do really well, but I think there are just some gigs in your life that you remember, and it feels like the opportunities for these two shows on these two days will be really memorable.”
