Camus is a traditional folk band based in Cambridge, UK. We’ve played around East Anglia for many years, at clubs, festivals, ceilidhs and concerts, but have recently re-formed as a trio. We play an exciting mix of musical traditions, with influences from Northumbria and Shetland, a dash of bluegrass, Galician and Irish, and our own tunes and songs.
STOP PRESS: NEW TUNES FOR THE NHS!
Our tune-writing group, Fine-Tuning, started by our friend Jon Shurlock as a lockdown project, and mentored by the amazing piper Chris Evans, has produced a book of 98 new tunes for the Northumbrian pipes – you can get a copy by donating to the NHS via our Just Giving page.
You can also see below a video of performances of seven tunes from the book, again with links to the Just Giving page. We hope you enjoy them.
“Get out there and listen to this stuff! Camus are a lively traditional three-piece whose jigs and reels instrumentals close Friday night with a bang.”

“Andrew, Greg and David gave us a fantastic evening’s entertainment and we saw the passion for their music. It was so obvious they enjoy playing together – doing what they know and love. Their range made the set great entertainment, interlacing folk standards with their own songs.” Jacqueline and Alastair Douglas, Weston Colville Reading Room
