Tom Campbell Trio have reached the finals of Battle of The Folk Bands 2021. The competition will be held on Hands Up for Trad Facebook and YouTube pages at 2pm. Why not come along and join in the fun?
We asked Tom of Tom Campbell Trio a few questions about the band.
Tell us about your band
The Tom Campbell Trio is a collective of three Scottish musicians with Tom on Flute, Callum Convoy on Bodhran and Scott Turnbull on Guitar. All three are immersed in the Glasgow traditional music scene. The trio’s sound comes from a blend of tastes, ideas and experiences formed from Scottish and Irish musical traditions. A lot of the band’s music is original, although inspired by trad. However, contemporary ideas are also included in the new compositions and arrangements.
Who are the band members
Tom Campbell – Irish Flute/Whistle
Callum Convoy – Bodhran
Scott Turnbull – Guitar
What are you hopes and aspirations for the band?
The Tom Campbell Trio hope to record and share their music, whilst building an audience both personally through gigging and online through platforms such as YouTube, and other social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. As soon as reasonably possible, the Trio hope to begin performing at live events again both nationally and internationally.
