Phil Callery

Phil Callery began his singing career in the Dublin Folk Clubs' scene in the late sixties. He went on to found the first "Singers Club" in Dublin in 1970, which he modeled on Ewan MacColl's famous "Listeners Club" in London. The "Singers Club" provided a platform in the early seventies for such names as Dolores Keane, Triona and Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill, Mary Black, Christy Moore, Luka Bloom, Paul Brady and many more. The "Singers Club" was a forerunner to the "Góilín" Traditional Singers Club. Phil has guested on several albums to date, Sinead O'Connor, Christy Hennessey, Jimmy McCarthy, to name but a few. He has toured extensively in Europe with 'The Voice Squad' and successfully toured Canada and the USA in 1995.
