Cam Johnson: Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin
Cameron has been playing music for more than 15 years. For the past three, he has been offering private lessons for guitar, banjo, mandolin, and percussion. His playing style has largely focused on folk, Americana, bluegrass, English and Irish folk, and alternative music. He loves working with new students to not only improve their musical skills but also to help them explore their musical style and interests. That means the inclusion of multiple teaching methods and a focus on real applications of rudimentary training.
He draws influence in his playing style from a wide range of artists across the folk and alternative folk spectrum from those such as Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, J.D. Crowe, Jim Croce, and the Dubliners to more recent artists like Colin Meloy, Marcus Mumford, the Avett Brothers, and Bon Iver.
Cameron has worked with a number of major acts, having shared bills with the likes of Booker T. and the M.G.s, and John Mosey among others. Most recently, he has become a member of the Gage Brothers playing banjo, mandolin, and guitar. Ben Gage has since also started an alt-folk band in which Cameron plays electric guitar and clawhammer banjo.
