About ALAthea

Winners of numerous acoustic music and songwriting awards, Alathea takes stories from their own lives and weaves them into music that’s instantly relatable. Rooted in the Appalachian Mountains, Alathea (Mandee Radford Langley and Cristi Johnson) create and perform original and traditional music in what they call Front-Porch-style, using eclectic instruments, thick modern harmonies and engaging storytelling of life on the road, taking cues from nature, their families, and neighbors along the way. This approach has taken Alathea around the US and across the world into Europe and Asia playing concerts, festivals and special events.

Alathea's recent full-length recording of traditional hymns "His Eye Is On the Sparrow" was selected by Coverfolk as one on the Best Traditional Folk Albums of 2017.
