Greg Campbell

Greg Campbell’s musical work focuses on percussion, French horn, and other instruments, as well as teaching courses based in an ethnomusicological approach. He has studied and played traditional Ghanaian (Asante) drumming since 1998 and is a co-founder of the drumming group Anokye Agofomma, which performs across the Pacific Northwest; in 2017 he was fortunate to visit Ghana for several weeks to study with Ghanaian legend Koo Nimo. As a jazz drummer, he has studied with Bob Moses, Dave Holland, Fred Buda, and he studied classical percussion and keyboard mallet instruments with Tom Collier and former Seattle Symphony timpanist Michael Crusoe. He is a member of the Seattle Percussion Collective, and is a founding member of the collective performance space Gallery 1412. As a scholar he has focused on community and collective music making, particularly the work of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians.
