Ceud Mìle Fàilte
Robin fronts Celtic Krystal on guitar and vocal and brings a life time of singing and stagecraft to the folk duo. With a musical portfolio of TV, radio, albums, showboats, concerts and clubs he has played in many genres of ‘making music’. From Glasgow, Robin’s classical upbringing was in piano, violin, and vocal. Robin sang in the highly successful Scottish folk duo ‘Lomond Folk’, until the death of his singing partner Donald Brown in 1977. A solo career followed, before moving south of the border to pastures new. In 2009 Robin returned to his Celtic roots to enjoy traditional music forming the group – Celtic Krystal.
Krystal creates a unique fiddle partnership. A founder member of the group in 2009, sharing her name in part, she brings a sensitivity to the music, blending and distilling the melodic with the harmonic for others to enjoy.She displays a sensitivity in her approach to the jigs, reels and plaintive airs. Krystal followed a classical upbringing in violin, but her love of fiddle tunes and folksong, when playing with Celtic Krystal, be they Scottish, Orkney or Shetland, Irish or English is her passion.
“Krystal accompanies Robin on songs ~ Robin accompanies Krystal on tunes.”
The duo ‘Sets’ provide fiddle tunes and songs from a wide range of Celtic traditional music, with our contemporary favourites from Ewan McColl, Donovan, Mark Knofler, Christy Moore, John Martyn, Tom Paxton, The Pogues, Planxty, The Dubliners, The Chieftains and a few penned originals.
With his Scottish heritage Duncan enjoys adding a twist of Bass to Celtic Krystal. Duncan has played with us since his baptism of Celtic fire, on St.Patrick’s Day 2014.
