Sarah Elizabeth Campbell Was a Native Austinite

RECEIVED Fri., Jan. 3, 2014

Dear Editor,
    Sarah Elizabeth Campbell was a native Austinite [“Playback,” Music, Jan. 3]. Although she moved to Columbia, Calif., for many years and was a beloved performer and friend there as well, Sarah moved back to Austin in 1989. She always had a home here and her beloved mother Sudie, who predeceased her fairly recently, came to see all her gigs. Sarah would spend Christmas seasons here throughout her time in California. Her brother Bill Campbell is also a revered musician worldwide, playing with Delbert McClinton and others. Bill lived in Fort Worth for a while but is back and has always also been considered a true native-born Austin musical treasure. Thank you for your coverage of Sarah Elizabeth Campbell.
