Cam Penner & Jon Wood
When Cam Penner and Jon Wood toured the UK and Ireland in 2015, the reviews were as glowing as the performances and followed them wherever they went.
They duo were flown in from their base in Canada for their sold-out headline show at Celtic Connections Festival after winning major TV exposure when tracks from the sensational TO BUILD A FIRE album were chosen as the backdrop to the BBC 2 TV drama based on Iain Banks’ Stonemouth novel.
The latest release - SEX & POLITICS – confirmed them as a creative tour de force.
Penner has that rare quality – a well-grounded human spirit. In another life he might have been a Shaman. With constant playing companion Jon Wood (a highly respected producer in North America) by his side, percussive elements and layered guitar techniques have added rich texture. Those Shamans also dance around – and beat the drum – sometimes.
