The Cameroons are an immersive, malleable and raucously fun acoustic power trio conceived by songwriter-guitarist Ben Cameron, economist Tom Landstreet on washboard, and Joe Andrews from Grammy-winning string band Old Crow Medicine Show on lead guitar and mandolin.
They are the ultimate "house band," delivering multi-layered, craft musical experiences to conferences, festivals and events throughout North America.
Through their repertoire of a thousand songs, a couple hundred jokes, a tall tale or two, as well as original music written specifically for the occasion, The Cameroons curate a custom live experience like no other.
When required, they call on extra firepower from Nashville's top session talent and beyond.
Notable (and honorary) Cameroons include:
- Dave Cohen, Academy of Country Music’s '17/'18/'19 Keyboard Player of the Year;
- Lucas Leigh, the Mississippi Wunderkind, who by age 11 had jammed with
both Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard;
- Matthew Szemela, violin at Berkeley Philharmonic;
- Jay Rutherford, guitar/vocals at Los Colognes;
- Adam Terrell, guitar at Assembly of Dust;
- David Cameron, vocal arranger, former Whiffenpoof;
- The Turnpike Horns (NJ), The Low Country Horns (SC), The Big Sky Horns (MT).
