A Salute to Veterans with singer-songwriter Don Campbell on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 2 p.m.

All area veterans and Gold Star Families are invited to attend A Salute to Veterans with singer-songwriter Don Campbell on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 2 p.m. free of charge.

State flags will line the drive up to the concert venue thanks to area Rotary and Lions Clubs. Area elected officials, police and fire chiefs will be on hand, and the program will be filmed. The afternoon promises to be a wonderful Salute to Veterans and a fitting way to conclude Maudslay Arts Center’s 25th Silver Jubilee.

All veterans will have free admission thanks to the generous donations of the Amesbury, Merrimac, Newburyport, Salisbury, and West Newbury Senior Centers. All veterans wishing to attend should call the Senior Center in their community to be put on a list. Wheelchair vans will be provided for veterans who request need them. Refreshments will be served free of charge at intermission.

Don Campbell is an adult contemporary/country crossover and folk-rock singer-songwriter whose uniquely clear and well-delivered presentation of music supports the story in the song and welcomes the audience on board for the ride. Often compared to the sounds of Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, and Chris Isaak, Don and his ensembles are based out of New England.

Don Campbell is a singer-songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist whose music is inspired by sources as diverse as the Celtic and Canadian Maritimes music of his family to Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, the Beatles and novelist, Stephen King. Writing in genres including adult contemporary, country, Celtic, Christmas, bluegrass, and rock, Don has released 12 CDs, most recently a two-disc, 23-song collection, “Kites To Fly: Celebrating The Music Of Dan Fogelberg.”

Co-based in Portland, Maine and Nashville, TN, Don averages between 150-200 performances per year primarily with the New England-based Don Campbell Band and smaller ensembles, including the nationally touring Restless Campbells. Don released a new original adult contemporary project, The Dust Never Settles, in 2014.
