Kate Campbell is Coming to Town

I’m excited to say we have Kate Campbell coming to JCJC in April to help us Celebrate Eudora Welty’s birthday. She is a singer/songwriter who has written music based on Welty’s fiction. She also writes a great deal about civil rights and Southern culture in general.

You can go to her website to listen to clips of her music.

See the flyers for our Welty Celebration events:

Welty Celebration Events @ JCJC (April 12-16)

Thanks to the generous help of the Mississippi Humanities Council, these programs are free and open to the public. Come on out and listen to some Kate with us.

I’ve heard her twice now, and I think she is wonderful. She’s also very good at talking about the literary and historical context for her work as a songwriter. Good stuff. You can’t go wrong with Kate.
