Colleen Kattau, Guitar/Vocals
Colleen is a bi-lingual singer songwriter. She performs original alternative acoustic music. Her voice can be both strong and tender and has been likened to that of Joni Mitchell, Natalie Merchant, and Shawn Colvin. Colleen has performed at colleges and universities, women's and environmental festivals, and Latin American and labor solidarity events. She solos and also plays with her band, Night Skies. Colleen combines music and activism, recognizing the guitarra armada or 'armed guitar' concept of Latin American troubadours where the guitar and voice are mightier than the gun.
Her recordings include About Time, Wideland and Sing it Down: Songs to Close the SOA, co-recorded with compa' Jolie Rickman.
