New Dominion Bookshop to host free concert with Chris Campanelli

New Dominion BookshopNew Dominion Bookshop will host a free concert featuring local musician Chris Campanelli on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. This event is open to the public.

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.

Campanelli 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.
