Here is what Roger from Cruoses has to say:
Owen Campbell (Australia)
will appear at Crusoes on
Saturday 29th October 2011 at 8pm
It is my pleasure to give you all the chance to hear Owen Campbell live in Crusoes. Originally I had booked Owen without being able to listen to him properly, but man am I glad to have had the opportunity to hear him live! I travelled to the Jazz and Blues in Dunfanaghy to catch up with him (after hearing how good he was). He gave me a C.D and I bought him a Guinness….
Sometime later…. the album ‘Sunshine Road’ drove me home as the miles flew by and by. By the time I got home I realised the wee guy from Australia was a star. Don’t just take my word for it please listen to www.myspace/owencampbelltunes or www.owencampbell.com.au there are also good recordings on youtube and see if it’s your cup of tea.
