This is Johnny Campbell’s fifth visit to Toft House since early in 2016. He has released three albums and three singles and earned a formidable reputation on the British and European underground scenes, performing over a thousand shows by relentlessly touring over twenty countries, including USA, Mainland Europe, Nordic and Scandinavian countries as well as Eastern Europe. He has even recorded a live album on the Faroe islands.
Johnny is also an avid hill walker and campaigner for the right to roam and his efforts have featured in Country Walking magazine and The Guardian.
