CELTIC KRYSTAL – ASHWELL MUSIC FESTIVAL 2022
Audience participation is a must for this dynamic duo bringing a fusion of traditional folk songs and fiddle music to Ashwell. Robin Campbell fronts the duo on guitar and vocals, bringing his years of professional singing and stagecraft to the show. Krystal Freya Munn from Hertfordshire brings her love of fiddle tunes and folksongs to complete the partnership. From jigs and reels to haunting airs and passionate ballads based on Scottish, Irish, English and International musical heritage, Celtic Krystal performances really bring on the craic! A fun and uplifting evening’s entertainment. Dario’s Fish and Chips will also be at the event selling his lovely food and there will be a bar inside the church selling wine, beer and soft drinks. Please note only drink purchased from our bar can be consumed in the church.
Guitar / Vocals
Robin fronts Celtic Krystal on guitar and vocal and brings a lifetime 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 the melodic with the harmonic for others to enjoy in the jigs, reels, and plaintive airs. Krystal followed a classical upbringing in violin, but her love of fiddle tunes and folksong, be they Scottish, Orkney or Shetland, Irish or English is her passion.
