Celebrating Eudora Tribute Concert

with Kate Campbell, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Caroline Herring and Claire Holley
Presented in collaboration with the Savannah Music Festival
Co-sponsored by Carolyn Luck, & by John and Stephanie Duttenhaver
The Savannah Book Festival is offering a new ticketed musical event at this year’s Festival: five-time Grammy Award-winner Mary Chapin Carpenter and three other renowned singer-songwriters–Kate Campbell, Caroline Herring and Claire Holley–will perform a unique tribute to the late Pulitzer Prize-winning Southern writer Eudora Welty in a tribute concert the evening after the Savannah Book Festival on Saturday, February 6th, 2010, in Trinity Church.
Presented in collaboration with the world-renowned, award-winning Savannah Music Festival, this exciting addition to the Festival schedule will feature Carpenter, Campbell, Herring and Holley singing their own songs chosen specifically for and inspired by the literary legacy of Mississippi writer Eudora Welty, whose 100th birthday would have been April 13th, 2009. The concert, which debuted at the centennial celebration for Welty earlier this year, received rave reviews, and it is in perfect keeping with the Savannah Book Festival’s mission to promote the written word, particularly the work of Southern authors.
Taking place in historic Trinity United Methodist Church at 8 pm on Saturday, February 6th, 2010, the concert will be a ticketed fundraising event for the Festival. Tickets for $50 are on sale now through the Savannah Box Office.
