With the Campfire Girl tour, musical vagabond singersongwriter Michelle Shocked celebrates the 25th anniversary of the release of her album The Texas Campfire Tapes.

This unconventional debut, a bootleg release of a recording made on a Sony Walkman, surprised everyone, including Michelle, when it hit the UK independent charts in November 1986.

Born in east Texas, Michelle grew up playing string band music such as those found on her album Arkansas Traveler. A sharply observant singer-songwriter, Michelle has explored the heart's depths and her political convictions from the release of her 1988 album, Short Sharp Shocked through last year's Soul of My Soul. During this tour, Michelle calls attention to a cause of great concern, public schools' paucity of arts education.
