Katie Lee

Katie Lee is the grande dame of Western singers and environmentalists. She’s also an author, musicologist, storyteller, actress, songwriter, filmmaker, photographer, activist, poet and river runner. Lee is one of a handful who knew the 170 miles of Glen Canyon well. Before it was dammed, she made 16 trips down the river and even named some of the side canyons. Glen Canyon, and the river that ran through it, changed her life, so it's not surprising that she never got over her horror at it being flooded under 500 feet of Colorado River water behind Glen Canyon Dam. Lee’s expertise and affection with this area landed her in two films: DamNation (Mountainfilm 2014) and Wrenched (Mountainfilm 2014).
