Kate Campbell is a Southern singer-songwriter, who writes and sings memorable folk songs infused with undercurrents of Delta blues, folk, pop, and country.
Campbell’s 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, Eudora Welty, and William Faulkner.
About Kate Campbell
Originally from the Mississippi Delta and the daughter of a Baptist preacher, 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 and character, as well as her songwriting. Over the course of 20+ years since her acclaimed debut album “Songs from the Levee,” she has resisted the temptation to follow musical trends, but instead chooses to set the pace for her unique musical journey clearly palpable in her latest release “Damn Sure Blue.” Campbell has performed at Cambridge Folk Festival, Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, National Storytelling Festival and been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Live From Mountain Stage, and The Bob Edwards Show.
