David Campbell

Son of Ian Campbell, grandson of singers Dave and Betty Campbell, David Campbell is the only member of Birmingham's most celebrated singing family still active in traditional music.

He is known primarily as an unaccompanied singer, but also accompanies himself on banjo or ukulele. He has avoided the family repertory, as it tends to be Scottish, and he isn't. Instead, he sings whatever he fancies, his sources ranging from Joseph Taylor and Harry Cox to Bert Lloyd and Steve Tilston; from Alfred Reed and Cliff Carlisle to E.Y.Harburg and Steve Earle.

 

Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
