She has a gently commanding way with a song … she draws you in slowly until it’s a case of sweet surrender.” (Folk Roots) 

Irish singer/songwriter  Fil Campbell (or Phil) has been a part of the Irish music industry all her life.  Together with her percussionist husband Tom McFarland, they play and sing a mixture of  contemporary and traditional Irish music, combined with some of Fil's own compositions and bring their Northern Ireland to the stage.
