Album Notes
\"Campbell\'s warm lulling voice is eminently suited to old fashioned gems like \'Love\'s Old Sweet song\' and “The Homes of Donegal”, and the musicianship is top notch\". Evening Herald, Dublin

Fil\'s 4th solo CD is a collection of 15 Irish folk songs that she learned as a child. Including some well known favourites from the songbook of Delia Murphy as well as some less well known traditional gems from the repertoire of Maggie Barry etc.

The CD Includes duets of Love\'s Old Sweet Song with Sean Keane and What Would You Do Love? with Tommy Sands. Also featuring special guests Steve Cooney on guitar, Finbar Furey on uillean pipes, John Sheahan (the Dubliners) on fiddle and whistle and Laoise Kelly on harp.

The CD accompanies the RTE television series Songbirds - the First Ladies of Irish Song. All the songs were originally recorded by Delia Murphy or one of the other women profiled in the series (Maggie Barry, Mary O\'Hara, Ruby Murray or Bridie Gallagher) A DVD of the series is also available.
