Winners of numerous acoustic music and songwriting awards—including the 2011 We Are Listening International Singer/Songwriter competition and Best Group/Duo at the International Acoustic Music Awards (2010)—Alathea takes stories from their own lives and weaves them into music that’s instantly relatable. Perhaps such relevance is because the music is born from community; And that approach has taken Alathea around the country and across the world playing concerts, festivals and special events that include NPR’s Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, Pennsylvania’s acclaimed Musikfest, Bristol’s Rhythm and Roots Reunion, as well as performances in Europe and Asia. Alathea’s partnership with Appalachia Service Project serves to celebrate and spread the news of ASP’s work to help eradicate substandard housing in the Appalachian mountains where Mandee and Cristi live with their families.
Alathea’s latest recording His Eye Is On the Sparrow was selected by Coverfolk as one of the Best Traditional Folk Albums of 2017.
