After four years of successful multi-day storytelling festivals, Charleston Tells continues to extend the power of performance through a quarterly concert series. Mark your calendar for August 25, when Charleston Tells Concert Series presents an Evening with Kate Campbell.

The people and culture of the modern South serve as the inspiration for the songs of Nashville-based singer/songwriter Kate Campbell. The daughter of a Baptist preacher, Kate uses her songs to chronicle the societal changes below the Mason-Dixon Line. 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, Eudora Welty, and William Faulkner.

"What a great talent Kate Campbell represents is made clear by the legends in music that appear as guest artists on her albums. Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark, Maura O'Connell, John Prine, Mac McAnally, Buddy Miller, Spooner Oldham, and the heart of the Muscle Shoals classic soul and R&B hit-making machine are both admirers and collaborators in her distinctly literate musical vision." - Roots Time
