Bio

'To describe Innes Campbell as a guitar player is somewhat of an understatement.....this CD lends credence to the fact that he is not only one of the country's finest flatpicking guitarists, but is a talented songwriter also'

Greg McGrath, CD review 'Something Quick and Neat', Australian Bluegrass website.

Innes and Present Company are a modern bluegrass band from Brisbane, Australia led by Scottish-born 2009 National bluegrass guitar champion Innes Campbell.

Since their inception in late 2009 they have delighted audiences at festivals and urban venues around Australia with their blend of high energy bluegrass, thoughtful songwriting, tasteful harmony singing and surprising arrangements of contemporary songs.

Innes + Present Company perform old-style around a single microphone and present a visually interesting show. The band's sound arises from the combination of guitar (Innes Campbell), mandolin (Mick Patrick), fiddle (George Jackson) and acoustic bass (Markus Karlsen), with the occasional appearance of banjo (George) and dobro (Innes), set off by Innes and Mick's alternating lead vocals and harmonies from the other band members.

The band perform a selection of their own arangements of bluegrass classics, Innes's original songs, ballads and contemporary songs done in the band's style. Their live performances showcase not only their extraordinary musicianship but their sense of fun. Expect to be entertained!

'Innes Campbell performs traditional bluegrass at a very high standard, sings traditional folk sweetly and with feeling, and his original songs highlight his lyrical skill and quiet sense of humour. Not to be missed.' Ann Infante, The Folk Rag, Brisbane.
