We can’t imagine a better start to our second season in the Moss Arts Center than Kathy Mattea’s “Calling Me Home.” Her songs, all hitting so close to home here in Appalachia, filled the performance hall, as did a heartwarming theatre-wide sing-a-long.

In case you, like us, are are still thinking about opening night, here are some images to help you relive it. From lobby activities (a huge thanks to Just a Bunch of Guys String Band for filling the Moss Arts Center with some music from our home) to the meet and greet with Mattea herself after the performance, we’ve got it all here!

Mattea delivered such a warm, easygoing performance–we couldn’t believe how quickly the minutes seemed to evaporate away!

After the performance, Mattea took time to meet as many fans as possible–including some new faces and some old friends.

We hope those of you who made it to the show thoroughly enjoyed it, and we hope to see as many of our patrons as possible throughout the season.
