Robin Campbell was born in Glasgow in 1948. Robin's musical beginnings were forged in a classical music upbringing in a family dedicated to the highly regarded Glasgow choral societies - the Phoenix choir, and the Glasgow Choral Union. In contrast, Robin played in several Glasgow Rock Bands and then formed in the late 60s, 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 like minded 'folkies' until the untimely death of Donald in 1977, after a gig in Aberfeldy.
Painfully, Robin closed the curtains on Lomond Folk. A year later Robin launched his solo career on the Scottish tourist circuit and continued to compère the Clyde and Loch Lomond Showboat cruises for six years. Moving to London, Robin involved himself in many musical genres including production work. For the last twelve years he has returned to traditional folk, mainly in the South East of England. Apart from solo work he is also the vocalist in 'Celtic Krystal', a folk n' fiddle trio - the circle is unbroken! Robin has back catalogue recordings on Decca Beltona Sword, Lismor, Bluebell Music, Occasion Recordings, KRL and is presently recording two CDs for release in 2014. Robin is available for clubs, concerts and festivals. He can be contacted by email:firstname.lastname@example.org or on Mobile 07860 667557.
