Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams
Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams are one of the most unique musical duos in American music. Larry, multi-instrumentalist, producer, is also known for his collaboration with Levon Helm on three GRAMMY® Award-winning albums as well as his role as invaluable session player and sideman for iconic artists as Bob Dylan (Never Ending Tour 1997-2004), Paul Simon, Willie Nelson, as well as Rosanne Cash, Sheyl Crow, Garland Jeffreys and many more.
Teresa Williams has been performing on stage since she can remember, and professionally for forty years. “I’m old enough to have toured with Eddy Arnold, which I was very proud to do in my early 20s”, she says. Her ensemble work in the Levon Helm Band, during the last decade of Levon’s life, led to tours with Hot Tuna, Little Feat, Phil Lesh and Friends, and Jackson Browne. After almost three decades as a couple, the two gifted musicians united in the studio in 2015 for their first record together, the acclaimed LARRY CAMPBELL & TERESA WILLIAMS, from which, shortly afterward, It Was the Music takes root. American Songwriter raved “This couple has tapped into the dusky spirit of Americana in all of its forms (folk, blues, rock and roll, gospel etc.) and created a unique sound inspired by the past, that is spirited, stirring and timeless.” “Songs that evoke the old classics of the roadways (and roadhouses) stretching along the Deep South between Nashville and New Orleans and the lesser-known, dustier trails along the way,” declared Pop Matters, adding, “The true Americana isn't a sound; it's a feeling. Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams make you feel it with every song.”
