A long time fixture in the Edmonton music scene, Cam has played his own style of fiddle music in clubs and festivals across the prairies and around the world. From the street to the concert hall, his musical journey has spanned the gamut of styles from traditional fiddling to jazz . Cam has spent the last two years tracing the route of the gypsy’s from India through Turkey , the Balkan’s, France and Spain and studying and composing music inspired by this journey.
“The Rd to Django” is a show that is based on these compositions. This show has been performed using as many as fifteen musicians and dancers to a solo show using foot rhythms and looping technology . The music is a seamless blending of traditional fiddle tunes with blues and jazz sensibilities flavored with the sounds of the gypsy trail .
Cam has an instructional DVD called “Fiddle Improv” which was recorded on Vancouver Island with Doug Cox. He has two recordings of original music, “Beats Crime“, a collection of music that has been called “jug jazz” and ,“The Cam Neufeld Connection – Live @ Bonnie Doon Hall“. This recording features musicians he has played with in various combinations and bands. The Cam Neufeld Connection plays original music that has been described as “a grab bag of tangos, jigs, waltzes, swing numbers and blues-all performed with verve and immaculate taste”
