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.

Tim Lowry grew up in southeastern Kentucky, where he learned the art of storytelling from Appalachian folk who told tales to entertain, teach morals and pass along local history. A storyteller for more than 20 years, Tim performs a variety of folk tales and stories about the South Carolina Lowcountry. With a Southern manner and a droll side-wit, Tim is equally at home in an Appalachian log cabin, a Mandan wigwam, a New York theater, a Texas ranch house, or a South Carolina plantation.
