Robin Campbell was born in Glasgow in 1948. Robin played in several Glasgow Rock Bands and then formed in the late 1967, with Donald Brown, the folk group Lomond Folk. Lomond Folk rapidly established their name on the Scottish Folk scene. They set up and ran the Black Bull Folk Club in Milngavie and by 1971 had released their first album 'Parcel o'Rogues'. This was the start of many gigs, touring and sharing stages with many other 'folkies' until the tragic death of Donald in 1977, after a gig in Aberfeldy. In time, Robin then launched a solo career on the Scottish tourist circuit and continued to compère the Clyde and Loch Lomond Showboat cruises. In the mid 80’s he moved to London for work. Over the years Robin has involved himself in many musical genres.
For the last twelve years he has returned to traditional folk music. Robin fronts Celtic Krystal on guitar and vocal, with Krystal Munn providing a unique fiddle partnership.
Robin's scratch band with guitar/vocals, fiddle, bass, Uilleann pipes/whistles and Bodhran provides an exciting blend of Celtic Trad'. Robin Campbell’s Celtic Mashup is a 100% pure, high energy, blend of the best in Scottish and Irish music with jigs, reels and traditional songs of the Celts.
