Fil Campbell presents Songbirds


Fil Campbell presents Songbirds
These are the songs that come to every Irish music lovers lips at the pluck of a harp or the sight of a pint of Guinness.

There could be no better songbird than Fil Campbell to lovingly recreate the songs and life stories of our forebears with this live performance. She is joined by Tom McFarland (percussion and vocals) and Brendan Emmett (guitar and mandolin).

Songbirds is the show that second and third generation Irish and their contemporaries will love, take their parents to, indulge their family memories, and reminisce about good old Ireland and the popular ballads of their youth.
But there is much more....the show is about powerful and intelligent women who packed out halls, and helped the Resistance in war torn Europe.

Focusing on the old Irish folk songs that Fil and generations of Irish singers learned as children, Songbirds was developed into a 6 part TV documentary series for RTE Television in Ireland, documenting the lives and music of Delia Murphy and 4 other very influential female singers  

Mary O'Hara, Bridie Gallagher, Ruby Murray and Margaret Barry - who all sang similar material in different styles.

Fil narrated the series which is available in its entirety on DVD at live concerts and in it you get snippets of her singing the old songs along with guest performers like Sean Keane and Finbar Fury
