After wowing a full house at the West End Cultural Centre when they performed both an opening slot and as the backing band for Bill & Joel Plaskett earlier this year, Mayhemingways return for their own headlining performance.
Mayhemingways are an eclectic and full-sounding duo from the musical hotbed of Peterborough, Ontario. Their music drifts timelessly from folk-rock to traditional country to something brand new. The band has been described as fuzz-folk with Cajun, bluegrass, and Celtic influences. Tom Wilson of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and Junkhouse writes “Mind-bending and original music with deep roots in the tradition of dark North American folk.”
Lead singer Benj Rowland switches between accordion, banjo, guitar, and tenor guitar while holding down the bass with foot pedals. Josh Fewings plays drums, percussion and adds back-up vocals.
