Colleen Kattau and Some Guys
“Joe Hill would be proud. Great singer and organizer at the same time” Pete Seeger says of Colleen Kattau. Colleen is a bi-lingual singer-songwriter of of New Song and Neuva cancion. She performs original alternative acoustic music in a mix of poetry and rhythm. Colleen has performed for diverse audiences at colleges, women’s and environmental festivals, and Latin American and labor solidarity events.
Colleen combines music and activism, recognizing the guitarra armada or ‘armed guitar’ concept of Latin American troubadours like Mercedes Sosa and Silvio Rodiguez who know that the guitar and voice are mighter than the gun. She lives in Central New York and when not performing she’s teaching Spanish or growing vegetables.
