Barry Campbell Band

Barry Campbell Band’s debut CD, “Ballad of a Ne’er Do Well”, is now finally available. It is a disk with a guitar heavy sound which melds Barry’s love of Blues and Reggae. Featuring Barry on both acoustic and electric guitar, Jeff Lisk on Drums and Humbert Medeiros on Fender Bass, the new CD has many original compositions as well as a few covers of some lesser known material. “Ballad of a Ne’er Do Well” is a unique and distinct addition to the Blues and Reggae world.
Drawing on diverse influences such as: Toots and the Maytalls, Freddy King, Bob Marley, Gov't Mule, Peter Tosh and Magic Sam, the band keeps dance floors packed everywhere they go. Barry Campbell has been playing around Edmonton and Alberta for a number of years, as a member several bands such as: Latinoblue, Refinery Row and Big, Bad & Blue. Barry has performed with such artists as Eddie Clearwater, Maurice John Vaughn, Jimmy Burns, Smokin' Joe Kubrick, Eddie Vaan Shaw Jr. and many others.
Barry Campbell Band is looking forward to promoting the new CD this summer and is excited to be able to present their product to the public.
