Remembering Dan Fogelberg: Maine Musician Produces Tribute Record
05/13/2013   Reported By: Keith Shortall

Singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg had a string of hits in the 1970s and 80s, including "Leader of the Band" and "Same Old Lang Syne." Fogelberg moved to Maine in later life and died of prostate cancer at his home in Deer Isle in 2007, at the age of 56. Maine musician Don Campbell, long an admirer of Fogelberg, never got the chance to meet him. But he did the next best thing - he's produced a double-CD tribute record to the late artist called "Kites to Fly." Keith Shortall spoke recently with Campbell and his wife Tonya - who is also his bass player - about the project, which has its roots in an experience from Campbell's youth.
