Kate Campbell On Mountain Stage

May 8, 2013 Campbell's straightforward singing style and dedication to her Southern roots in her songwriting has helped win her comparisons to Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams. Hear four songs from Campbell's new album, 1000 Pound Machine, recorded live at the Paramount Theater in Bristol, Tenn./Va.

Kate Campbell makes her sixth appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Paramount Theater in partnership with the Birthplace of Country Music in Bristol, Tenn./Va. Born in New Orleans, Campbell writes songs steeped in the culture of the American South. She released her debut album, Songs From the Levee, back in 1995; it drew apt comparisons to singer-songwriters like Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams.

Campbell's most recent album, 1000 Pound Machine, was produced by Americana guitar hero Will Kimbrough, and features collaborations with legendary songwriter and keyboard player Spooner Oldham, as well as Muscle Shoals bassist David Hood.

Set List
  • "Wait For Another Day"
  • "Red Clay After The Rain"
  • "Alabama Department Of Corrections Meditation Blues"
  • "Montgomery To Mobile"
