The B-52s' Kate Pierson On The Intimacy Of Working With A Band

Sep 15, 2017

The B-52s have been a major part of Georgia’s music scene since the 1970s, when it formed in Athens.


Kate Pierson, a founding member of the group, is one of the most accomplished collaborators in the business, performing with the likes of Iggy Pop, The Ramones, and REM. Pierson takes the stage Friday at 8 p.m. at Atlanta Symphony Hall with the B-52s. We talked with Pierson about her career and how she maintains her amazing singing voice.
