Alex Campbell was one of Scotland's best-loved wandering minstrels. Learning the art of busking while traveling with American folk singers Derroll Adams and Ramblin' Jack Elliott during the late '50s, he continued to perform a mixture of traditional Scottish tunes, American work songs, spirituals, and ballads until his death in 1987.
He played an important role in introducing the songs of Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, and Woody Guthrie to audiences in England and the Celtic Isles. Campbell moved to Denmark in the 1960s, settling first in Skagen and then in Tonder. For a brief period, Campbell was married to American folk singer, Peggy Seeger. In 2003, Storyville Records issued both In Copenhagen and At the Tivoli Gardens for the first time on CD. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
