phrasing and deep routed passion for stories and characters has been wowing audiences since she first came into prominence in late 80s’. Kathy is truly an amazing, high-spirited woman who, in addition to being a world-class singer, is also a highly successful professional artist. So, while in Telluride, Kathy will be conducting both music and painting events at the Telluride High School and the Ah Haa School for the Arts.
