The Music of Dan Fogelberg Project
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dan Fogelberg was a multi-platinum selling artist, with hits such as "Leader of the Band", "Longer", "Same Old Lang Syne" and a large and diverse catalog of over 20 albums. He passed away in 2007 after a three year battle with prostate cancer. Dan remains a huge influence and musical hero of Don's. On November 13, 2012, Don released a double CD, Kites To Fly: Celebrating the Music of Dan Fogelberg and in January, 2013, began presenting live performances of this music around his own busy schedule of Don Campbell Music shows. His performances are endorsed by The Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria whose leadership also brought the Band to Dan’s hometown of Peoria, IL to headline one of its annual Dan Fogelberg Celebration Weekends.

Kites To Fly
While I terribly miss Dan, Don Campbell's tribute album most certainly channels Dan for me. I didn't think there was another angelic voice out there until I heard this album. Kites To Fly has brought a long lasting smile to my face.

It's really hard to cover somebody as good as Dan Fogelberg for an entire album. But Don has enough similarity to the voice and understates the arrangements to provide a tribute that is definitely worth owning. Well done...

Love the album

Love the album. It's a great tribute. Don does a wonderful job of not making it too like Dan Fogelberg but adding his own flavor to it. Thanks to Don for making this and hope we hear more music from him in the future!
Wonderful music to my ears!

I recently went to a fundraiser where Don sang and I bought this CD immediately after I got home. His voice is so smooth and such a pleasure to hear him perform. So glad I bought this CD
Attention Fogelberg Fans

Don Campbell has a great story about how he discovered Dan Fogelberg's music as a 16 year old in Maine. He has been inspired mucically ever since and has released quite a few albums himself. We downloaded this album before seeing Don and his band live in a tribute concert in Peoria, IL, Dan's home town. The songs are timeless, Don and his band do a very faithful cover of many of the best Fogelberg songs. Don mentioned at the concert that Fogelberg's songs are like a favorite kite that you just need to take out and fly every once in a while -- hence the allbum's name. If you are a "Dan Fan," he is irreplaceable, but this album is a great reminder of what a great talent he was. Don and his band are quite talented in their own right, and in fact, we were so impressed, we bought one of his other albums at the concert.
“It would have been easy for Campbell to just go in and re-record Fogelberg’s greatest hits. but by giving a nod to all the different phases of his career, Campbell showcases what a magnificently (and deceptively) diverse song catalogue Fogelberg created. Campbell delivers his versions of the songs with love and reverence.”

Your performance brought up so much emotion, happiness, compassion, memories and love in me and in my audience that it can only be described as magical.” - Joan Chamberlain, Exec. Director, St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts, Berlin NH
“Dan’s spirit was in that room last night. We sang and laughed and cried.” - Annie B
