Mayhemingways are an eclectic and full-sounding duo from the musical hotbed of Peterborough, Ontario. They describe their sound as fuzz-folk with bluegrass, Cajun, and Celtic influences. Lead singer Benj Rowland plays accordion, banjo, guitar and tenor guitar while holding down the bass with foot pedals. Josh Fewings plays drums, percussion and adds back-up vocals.
In 2017 they completed a cross-Canada tour with Joel Plaskett and his father Bill, as their opening act and backing band. Including stops at The National Arts Centre in Ottawa and the famed Massey Hall in Toronto. Later this year they will once again tour their country and will also head to Europe for the first time in October and November.
“Mind-bending and original music with deep roots in the tradition of dark North American folk.” -Tom Wilson of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings & Lee Harvey Osmond.
