Sydney Guitar Festival Interviews: Brian Campeau

After receiving rave reviews from his sold out SGF2017 performance, Canadian born but Aussie based Brian Campeau will reprise his ‘Get Blind With Brian!’ show. A unique performance featuring his complex playing and long, sorrowful vocals, all mixed into his odd sense of humour. Prepare to really listen to Brian. You’ll have no choice as the audience is to be blindfolded!

Brian Campeau is mostly known for his complex guitar playing accompanied by long sorrowful vocals. He is much less known for his charm and willingness to please his audience. That’s because some people don’t like his sense of humor, but that’s ok, right?

 

We asked Brian some questions ahead of his unique performance at the Sydney Guitar Festival. 

What is your most memorable music moment? 
Most recently, receiving a standing ovation for playing classical music (a bach piece and a vivaldi piece) during a progressive folk set. That was wonderful

Guitarist that inspired me to learn to play
Originally Slash (i was five), later on Nick Drake, and most recently Ben Eunson

How many guitars I own & my personal fave
I own 8 currently, and i like 3 of them the most, and equally. My hollowbody Electric Hagstrom, my steel-string Seagull, and my solid body nylon by Godin

Most under rated guitarist in music & why?
Larry Lalonde comes to mind. Everyone always thinks of Les and Herb when it comes to Primus, but Larry’s role is hugely crucial.

What other acts are you planning to see play during the fest?
Unfortunately, none, as i’ll be flying in and out Sydney only for my own gig……

 

The Sydney Guitar Festival invites you to take part in the World Record attempt for the Largest Guitar Ensemble playing AC/DC’s Highway To Hell at The Concourse in Chatswood on Sunday, August 12!
