LEWISTON — Country favorite Don Campbell will perform Tuesday, Aug. 25, at L/A Arts’ final Music in the Parks 2009 concert, which will break with tradition. Rather than be held at noon, the concert will be at 6 p.m. in Fountain Park in the Bates Mill Complex.

The performance is free.

With world-class vocals and boy-next-door charm, Campbell has opened for Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood and Randy Travis. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, his fresh but familiar voice has taken him from his hometown of Scarborough to Nashville, and beyond. He averages more than 150 performances each year.

A national winner of the True Value/Colgate Country Showdown at the Grand Ole Opry, Campbell entertains audiences of all ages with his charismatic blend of adult contemporary, country and rock music.

Campbell will open for country music icon George Jones on Sunday, Aug. 23; and on Aug. 29, he will join artists from around the world at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon for the 2009 Just Plain Folks Music Awards. Nominated for Contemporary Album of the Year for his 2008 release, “American Garage,” he will perform one of his three nominated songs at the awards show.

Accompanying Campbell on stage at the Aug. 25th concert will be Tonya Shevenell on bass and harmonies.
