Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams
Larry Campbell is a master of acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel, cittern, and various other instruments. Larry initially forged a path from NYC, (where he was a regular performer and accompanist at the Lone Star Cafe) to Austin, TX and LA, playing with Shawn Colvin, Buddy & Julie Miller, Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash and others. Larry also performed and recorded with Bob Dylan for eight years. Upon his departure from Dylan's band, Larry became musical director and producer for the Levon Helm Band, resulting in three consecutive Grammy awards for Dirt Farmer, Electric Dirt and Ramble at the Ryman. He has produced and played on records for David Bromberg, Jorma Kaukonen, Hot Tuna and many more. Named Instrumentalist of the Year in 2008 by the Americana Music Association, Larry was later honored with their Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.
Teresa Williams grew up living the story of Americana music, picking and hoeing cotton on her family's seventh generation West Tennessee farm surrounded by the music of the Delta, Muscle Shoals, Nashville and Kentucky, singing at church, revivals and "singings with dinner on the ground." When Teresa came to NYC, she intersected musically with Campbell. They spent years working/traveling apart, notably with Teresa's theatre habit that included the creation of the role of Sara Carter, lead singer of The Original Carter Family, for “Keep on the Sunny Side” and Larry's Never Ending Tour with Bob Dylan's band. Together again and married, Larry and Teresa performed for years at Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles and toured as members of the Levon Helm Band. They tour regularly with Phil Lesh & Friends, Hot Tuna, Jackson Browne, and join Little Feat at Feat Fan Excursions. Among recordings they appear on: Hot Tuna's Steady as She Goes, Kaukonen's River of Time, Helm's Dirt Farmer, Electric Dirt, Ramble at The Ryman, and MerleFest Ramble. They released their debut album “Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams” in June, 2015.
