Duncan Cameron creates fresh and detailed folk music. His compositions and adaptations old songs in both French and English reveal the depth and contrast of emotions in lyrics as well as instrumental music. In addition to performing as a child with his musical family, Duncan went on to join 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 Tamarack. Living in Newfoundland for four years was a boon to his musical development, enabling him to join The Irish Descendants and exposing him to the vast repertoire of Newfoundland songs, fiddle and accordion music, and storytelling. Touring with these groups and Irish dance companies led Duncan to meet and be influenced by top musicians from across Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Ireland, and many other countries.
