Katy Moffatt's shows and an album

Katy Moffatt fits in the Americana or country category.  It's fair to compare this red-headed acoustic guitar player and songwriter to Bonnie Raitt, except Katy is acoustic.  She has blues, yodels, and is into history and story telling.  She is a 20 plus year veteran of the industry.  Attention: classic rock buffs, while working as a solo artist, she's also been a featured singer with Lynn Anderson, Hoyt Axton and Tanya Tucker, plus she's either been produced by or collaborated with Dave Alvin, Rosie Flores, and Tom Russell.  She's working with Wendy Waldman on a project of historical songs.

I'm name-dropping because I want you to give her album, UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL a listen.  It was released in October 2005, but because it's a sweet feeling album, and Katy is booking shows, there are even more reasons to listen to it and write about it.
