    This month Krystal and myself will be working on our new CD at Sound Arc Studios in Shefford and preparing material for the Festive Season gigs.

    JULY 2016 – Robin Campbell & folk – Celtic Krystal will be back making music at La Concha Wine Bar and Tapas on Friday 8th July 2016 and several private weddings in July. Sadly during the past month the folk world lost another legend to that ever increasingly large folk club in the hereafter ‘Dave Swarbrick’. Dave was a uniquely talented fiddler and I can remembering seeing him for the first time playing in Birmingham in the 60’s. July sees the start of the summer recess for many folk clubs as we take to the hills and fields for the …
