Short Bio: Evelyn Campbell, singer/songwriter.
In the great folk tradition of telling stories through song, Evelyn Campbell is the Irish folk songwriter of our times. Her work catalogues the move towards social justice and equality and peace on Earth that is arising globally and being shaped in the hearts and minds of ordinary people. Her songs are of them and for them.
Throughout the Right2Water campaigns tens of thousands of Irish people heard ‘ROBBING PETER’, ‘COLD WIND BLOWING’ and ‘2014 RISING’ during the rallies that challenged injustice and austerity.
During our commemorative year, 2016, Evelyn raised issues such as
* the absence of women from the narrative in ‘FENIAN WOMENS BLUES” which boasts (70,000 +
views on Facebook)
* and the connection between the current movements for social justice with the struggles of 1916
in ‘PATRIOTIC GAMES’ (7,000 +)
While continuing to add to the ‘Old Stories, New Songs’ Collection, Evelyn has also written on contemporary issues such as
* the current homelessness crisis with ‘ I CANT FEEL MY HEART BEAT’
* the campaign for Medicinal Cannabis with ‘LEGALISE FOR AVA’
Her back catalogue also contains songs of deep personal and universal emotional experience and occasional dark humour from the album Overdue Review.
In the intimate setting of Bray Arts Club Evelyn will invite the audience to suggest themes of interest to them and then offer songs from her repertoire that match those themes.
