About Duncan Ross Cameron

Duncan Cameron is a Sudbury-based musician who specializes in playing Celtic music for weddings and other special events. He plays the violin, guitar, mandolin, Irish bouzouki, banjo, bodhrán, English concertina, harmonica and tin whistle and also sings, making him a great acoustic one man show. His repertoire includes songs in both English and French and can be calm and relaxing or upbeat and energetic depending on the moment and mood of your wedding. Traditional Irish, English and French-Canadian groups have contributed much of Duncan's repertoire, but classical, country, and other popular styles of music have also added to his creative approach.

He has toured, recorded with, and composed music for many groups including The Pierre Schryer Band (Juno nominated in 2004), Fig For A Kiss (nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in 2006) and The Irish Descendants.

His solo performances and his solo CD, The Whistling Thief (2000) have also garnered attention. His strong vocals (in both French and English), intricate arrangements, and sense of humour truly transport the listener.

Duncan is the winner of the 2019 Jackie Washington award for outstanding contributions to arts and culture in Northern Ontario.

"Duncan is a living encyclopedia of traditional music, breathing new life into every song he plays. Not only is he a first-rate fiddler, but also a skilled singer, multi-instrumentalist and storyteller. He can switch seamlessly between mandolin, guitar, Irish bouzouki, tin whistle, harmonica, bodhrán and English concertina. He can tell you about the background of every song, and proves that traditional music is not static - it is alive and vibrant!”

Max Merrifield, Executive/Artistic Director, Northern Lights Festival Boréal.

"Duncan Cameron is an outstanding musician and folklorist, story teller and raconteur. His performances are rich and full of history. His newly composed tunes go beyond the present, drawing from his deep well of traditional music. Duncan's voice delivers the emotions of people long gone and of those sitting before him. In short, Duncan Cameron lives and breathes music, as honest as the earth."

Teilhard Frost, musician, promoter, artist.
