  • Biography Anti-folkers The Foghorns began in Brooklyn in 2001 with Bart Cameron bringing songs written in Wisconsin to New York for various strange performances, mainly with the help of Brooklyn bluegrass band The Cobble Hillbillies. When Bart moved to Iceland in 2003 as a Fulbright Fellow, he revamped the band and toured Iceland using the moniker. In Iceland, Bart released a bucket and guitar folk album, So Sober. The band, still with bucket percussion, performed across Iceland including performing twice at Iceland Airwaves, at Innipukinn, and more than a 100 other performances across the island. In 2006, Bart moved to Seattle, Washington. With Katie and Rich Quigley, the band recorded "A Diamond as Big as the Motel Six" in 2009. The tour that supported that CD took the band to Iceland, England, Scotland, Denmark and Sweden, along with a 42-stop cross country US tour. In 2011, The Foghorns released their seventh full length CD, and it is their first full-length LP on vinyl. The lineup is: Bart Cameron, Jason Kopec (a converted taiko drummer performing on pots, pans, and sometimes drums), and accordionist/ pianist Peter Colclasure, along the BUCKET OF BOURBON CHOIR (Colin J. Nelson, Matt Ploszaj, David Rossman, and Laurel Hoffman).
