Interview: “The True-life Duet”
“Be it L.A.’s “Wrecking Crew,” the Muscle Shoals “Swampers” or Nashville’s endless stream of session players, it’s easy to be drawn to the stories of musicians who provide the backbone to great songs but probably wouldn’t be recognized in a grocery store.”
“Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams fit this description perfectly.”
Collectively, the pair has backed Levon Helm, Emmylou Harris, Phil Lesh, Bob Dylan, Rodney Crowell, Elvis Costello and Rosanne Cash among many others.”
“Toss in the fact that the musical duo have been married for nearly 30 years and the story gets even more interesting.”
“These days, Campbell and Williams are taking their rightful places in the spotlight with this year’s release of their self-titled debut album.”

NPR: Larry & Teresa on Mountain Stage
“Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams appear together on Mountain Stage, recorded live in Charleston.
Campbell, a singer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and all-around “musician’s musician,” has worked with Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Bob Dylan and Mavis Staples — and, perhaps most notably, served as Levon Helm’s musical director for seven historic years.
Campbell steps into the spotlight here with Williams, his partner in life and music, for a mix of original songs and beloved covers from their self-titled collaborative album.” Click here to read more

He’ll no doubt play some of his best-known ’70s tunes, but last year’s ‘Standing in the Breach’ showed Browne remains committed to dovetailing the personal and the political with new material.”
“Equally significant on this bill, however, is the opening duo: Campbell, an ace instrumentalist with the likes of Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, stepped out front with vocalist Williams on an impressive self-titled album released in June.”
