Folk artist Derek Webb, a former member of contemporary Christian band Caedmon's Call, will bring his "She Must and Shall Go Free" 10-Year Anniversary Tour to The Camp House, 1427 Williams St., at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17.

The Chattanooga stop is part of a two-month tour commemorating the 2003 release of Webb's first solo album. He plays the entire album start to finish each night, along with requests and new material.

He is accompanied by the album's co-producer, guitarist Kenny Meeks, who will do a solo set as well. Meeks is a former member of Sixpence None the Richer and former bass player for Buddy Miller.

On his website, Webb says "She Must and Shall Go Free" is "arguably my most beloved album," though it generated some controversy for its strong language and themes. The album was the result, he says, of his journey exploring what role he might play in church and what role the church might play in culture.

For a limited time, Webb is offering a free download of the album at

In an online video, Webb says his latest project is "I Was Wrong, I'm Sorry & I Love You," which explores the same themes but with a fresh perspective 10 years later. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
