Description: Mayhemingways are an alt-country, bluegrass, and Cajun music duo from the musical hotbed of Peterborough, Ontario. Their music drifts timelessly between traditional music and something brand new. Benj Rowland sings lead vocals and plays numerous instruments including accordion, banjo, guitar, and foot pedal bass. Josh Fewings adds back-up vocals and percussion. Their sound is full and so is their touring resume, having toured as far west as Dawson City, Yukon twice and numerous times to the Maritimes and Newfoundland. The duo recently released their first self-titled EP, recorded by James McKenty who has worked with great Canadian acts like Blue Rodeo, The Sadies, Cuff the Duke, Gordon Pinsent, and many more. Their music fits in many settings, from quiet house concerts to big festivals.
