Maine singer-songwriter Don Campbell will perform a tribute show to his longtime musical influence, singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg, on Saturday, March 23.

The concert will begin at 8 p.m. and feature songs from the multi-platinum selling artist. Fogelberg passed away in 2007 from prostate cancer.

Campbell is making a donation from the CD sales to three charities in Fogelberg’s honor.

Campbell was the national winner of the Texaco/True Value Country Showdown at the Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tenn., and was named Male Artist of the Year at the Just Plain Folks Music Awards.
