Kathy was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Kathy now calls Whitefish, Montana her home. She fell in love with Whitefish, a little town in northwest Montana, in the in the 1970′s while traveling and singing in lounges all over the United States.
Her professional musical career began in college at the University of Oregon when she was part of a folk music quintet called the Greek Singers. After college, she traveled the U.S. and Canada throughout the 1970′s sharing the bill as a lead singer with one of the top show lounge music/comedy duos called KEEL & SULLIVAN. The duo performed in supper clubs, lounges, and military bases in 30 states and Canada.
In the late 1970′s Kathy made her permanent move to Whitefish. She continued to sing and strum her guitar as a solo act at the area ski resort, local clubs and restaurants, and in over 400 schools, juvenile detention facilities all over the country.
She enjoys interaction with her audience and knows how to get the audience involved in singing along and laughing. Often she will even talk some members of the audience into coming coming up front of everyone to help out with the song.
Hillcrest was honored to have Kathy Sullivan perform for a second time.
