Posted by smneal0807 On October - 7 - 2013

Audiences will get a slice of Sweet Potato Pie, the longest running female band in the nation, Oct. 14 at 8 p.m. in Scott Concert Hall of the Fine Arts building.
Sweet Potato Pie’s unique style will give people of all ages something to satisfy their sweet tooth. The band specializes in bluegrass, country, and gospel and consists of four members: Sonya Stead, Crystal Richardson, Carrie Webster, and Sandy Whitley. They describe their special mixture of music as “sweetgrass.”
They not only give the crowd great music, but they give a good laugh as well with their incorporation of humor into their shows, according to Dr. Ran Whitley, host for the event.
Tickets are available at the door and the event is free for Campbell students, faculty, staff, and family of faculty. The event is also free for Cape Fear Friends of the Fine Arts. Adults are $15. High school students and others are $5.
