”I defy anyone not to be galvanised by the total integrity of his exceptional rendition of (Ewan MacColl’s) Moving On Song” The Living Tradition
Since 2015, Johnny Campbell has been writing self-penned material and delving deep into Northern English folk song and story.
In that time releasing three albums and two singles, earning a formidable reputation on the British Folk and European underground scenes performing over 500 shows by relentlessly touring UK, USA, Ireland, Iceland, The Faroe Islands, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Austria, Croatia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey.
His most recent full length album, From Hull & Halifax & Hell (2020) took him to The Faroe Islands where he recorded a live album on the island of Nolsoy.
Since musical instruments hadn’t arrived on the islands until the 19th century, this is perhaps the first time Northern English traditional song has been recorded on these islands.
This album earned him album of the week with Blues and Roots radio …..
