The Stories of the Upstate™ #272: (Ed Campbell) "As a teen, I wanted to be Bjorn Borg."

Seneca singer-songwriter, Ed Campbell with The Drovers Old Time Medicine Show brings our 272nd story.


Bluegrass and rock and roll music is what Ed Campbell plays, but like Lou Reed, he thinks of himself as a writer who uses the music venue for his writing platform.  Bob Dylan and Neil Young were his inspirations to play rock and roll and a breakup with a girlfriend, a local bar's jukebox and George Jones led him to country and bluegrass.  Ed told us that he isn't the greatest singer or guitar player, but his greatest talent is bringing together the best singers and players to join him in creating music.  The proof is in the pudding.  Ed is a member of The Drovers Old Time Medicine Show making bluegrass music like it's nobody's business and he gets his rock and roll on with Pine Tar Rage, where 20 yr olds tell him he rocks harder than their peers.
