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

"Tom's superbly judged and sensitively understated percussion and vocal harmonies proved a perfect foil to Fil's glorious singing." (David Kidman, Living Tradition)


Irish singer/songwriter  Fil Campbell (pronounced 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.
