Singer/Song-Writer Kate Campbell @ the Friday Symposium and in Concert!

Friday, October 25 @ 12 noon (lecture) and 8: 00 pm in the BSM room (concert)

Kate Campbell is the daughter of a Baptist minister from Sledge, Mississippi. Her clear-water vocal delivery and eloquent gift of story-telling has drawn comparisons to such bastions of the Southern writing tradition as Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty, and Wm. Faulkner. She has played the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival and appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered. Recently she released a gospel CD that has received rave reviews. She earned an MA degree in Southern history from Auburn University to enhance her work as a song-writer. This woman is really, really good!
