Singer and songwriter Kate Campbell makes her first Long Island appearance here at LIM with the Sunday Street Concert Series.
Over the course of her two decades plus career in music, Kate has set forth on a unique musical journey that is rooted in the stories of people connected with the modern south. Her endearing, clear-water vocal delivery and her eloquent gift for storytelling have drawn repeated comparisons to such bastions of the Southern literary tradition as Flannery O’Connor, William Faulkner and Eudora Welty.
Kate’s subjects for songs have included Elvis Presley (“Tupelo’s Too Far”), the conflict over segregation (“Crazy in Alabama”), and changes in Southern culture(“New South”).
Originally from the Mississippi Delta and the daughter of a Baptist preacher, Kate’s formative years were spent in the very core of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s, and the indelible experiences of those years have shaped her heart and character as well as her songwriting.
