Fil Campbell and Tom McFarland

From Co. Down in Ireland, we welcome superb husband and wife duo Fil & Tom to the club

With a great mix of traditional and contemporary Irish songs, they deliver a highly engaging and entertaining night with the expert percussion skills of Tom perfectly complimenting Fil’s exquisite vocals

They are regular performers on the UK folk circuit with vast experience of folk clubs and festivals far and wide

Their traditional recordings were the focus of a TV documentary series in Ireland

Songbirds  which profiled the lives and music of women singers from the early 20th century – Delia  Murphy, Margaret Barry, Mary O’Hara, Bridie Gallagher and Ruby Murray was described by the Daily Mirror as “a triumph” for the broadcaster RTE
