Kate Campbell: How Southern Female Authors Have Influenced My Songwriting
March 12, 2016 @ 7:30 pm$15
A Concert and Lecture in Song, hosted by Barbara and Graham Dean
Some writing is like comfort food–or “comfort language.” For Mississippi singer-songwriter Kate Campbell, the work of Eudora Welty, Flannery O’Connor, and Harper Lee is like that. They are all from the South and their work has profoundly influenced Kate’s songwriting voice. In this concert, Kate will read and sing and open up further conversations about these writers and the notion of comfort language. Maybe we’ll talk about comfort food as well!
As the daughter of a Baptist preacher from Sledge, Mississippi, Kate Campbell’s formative years were spent in the very core of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and the indelible experiences of those years have shaped her heart, character and convictions ever since. Her clear vocal delivery, eloquent gift for storytelling (which has drawn repeated comparisons to Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty and William Faulkner) and easy command of a full range of American music styles, combine to earn Campbell recognition as a formidable talent by critics, musicians, and a discerning public.
