John Campbell

I was once lucky enough to stumble upon the Edinburgh story-telling festival, and completely by chance went to listen to John Campbell whose lyrical voice held the audience spell-bound with the funniest stories I have ever heard. I went back to hear John tell his stories every evening and the Netherbow Centre was always completely packed with people. No fey stories of princes and princesses but everyday stories about the people of Ulster. John had the rare gift of making people laugh - thanks John you were great.
