Studio Guest – Fil Campbell & Tom McFarlane – Tues 1st May – 8-10 Travels With My Auntie Liz – with Liz Clark

Fil Campbell & Tom McFarlane are joining Auntie Liz earlier in the studio on Tuesday 1st May to bring their music the craic.  They appear at the Star Folkclub on the 1st May 2018 8pm ! So if you miss the show by going to Glasgow’s renowned Folk Club – get the duo on catch up!


Irish singer  Fil Campbell and her percussionist husband Tom McFarland, have been playing as a duo since the early 90s. Their combination of vocals, guitar and percussion and mixture of original, contemporary and traditional Irish music have gained them a loyal following for their fun approach to both new and old songs.

“Vocals and Rhythm … a unique combination”  Zitty Magazine, Berlin

Fil (or Phil) Campbell grew up in Belleek on the Co. Fermanagh/Donegal border in the North of Ireland.  She was brought up on the folk songs that were popular in that area and spent her childhood immersed in music. With both ceilidh bands and singers in the family, music was all around and performance was part of everyday life, both at home and at school. Belleek is the home of the world famous Belleek Pottery, where Fil’s father worked all his life, and where she in turn spent several Summer holidays working.
