The Silver Darlings
Ceud Mìle Fàilte
Celtic Krystal is resting until December 2021. Krystal now has a baby daughter and had her second baby girl this September, so the fiddle is resting for a few months in the violin case.
When we are back playing, we will be keen to take bookings and are available for parties, folk nights, ceilidhs, concerts, clubs and pubs – indeed anywhere you want a Celtic vibe.
To make a booking please visit our bookings page for December 2021 onwards. The duo’s ‘sets’ provide fiddle tunes and songs from a wide range of Celtic traditional music, with our contemporary favourites from Ewan McColl, Christy Moore, Tom Paxton, The Pogues, Planxty, The Dubliners, and a few penned originals.
Date : January 22, 2022
Time : 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Location : The Highlander
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 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.
