In a remarkably short time, Nashville native Casey Campbell has become one of the most influential young voices in bluegrass mandolin. Born into a bluegrass family – he literally took his first steps backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in Bill Monroe’s dressing room – Campbell is a fourth-generation musician on both sides of his family.
“It seems like everywhere we went when I was young, people were playing music; The Station Inn, Grand Ole Opry, pickin’ parties, family gatherings. I couldn’t escape it even if I tried,” he explains.
Campbell’s performing and recording resume includes gigs with bluegrass legends Ricky Skaggs, Bryan Sutton, Del McCoury, Roland White, David Grier, the Nashville Bluegrass Band and many more. His innovative latest project, Mandolin Duets: Volume One, features the talented young musician playing with mandolin masters Mike Compton, Tim O’Brien, Ronnie McCoury, David Grisman, Sam Bush, Roland White, Jesse McReynolds, Bobby Osborne, Ricky Skaggs, Andy Statman, and Buck White.
