Join Chris Campanelli for a night of musical/verbal gestures to the beauty of the natural world and the elations and blind alleys of romantic love. This event will be free and open to the public.
“My eyes are good enough/to see as far as the sun.” Chris Campanelli is a singer, a player, and at his best, a seer. But who can always live at their best? Chris is therefore also a strut-er and fretter of hours, well acquainted with both the holy and the broken hallelujah. He has been a part of the Charlottesville music community for many years, first as a member of The Hill and Wood and Nettles, and subsequently as songwriter for his own band project, Camp Christopher. Chris enlisted Paul Curreri to produce a first album, Beyond the Word, in 2012, and after a stint in Vancouver, B.C., has returned to Virginia with a new set of songs that seek to lay hold of the radiance of the world with the imperfect instruments of a sometimes-troubled spirit, a sometimes-troubled mind.
