Guitar / Vocals
Robin fronts Celtic Krystal on guitar and vocal. From Glasgow, Robin sang in the Scottish folk duo ‘Lomond Folk’, until the death of his singing partner Donald Brown in 1977. A solo career followed, both north and south of the border. In 2009 Robin returned to his Celtic roots to enjoy trad’ music with the group – Celtic Krystal.
Krystal creates a unique fiddle partnership. A founder member of the group in 2009, sharing her name in part. 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.
