HKFC’s next concert night features talented NSW singer songwriter Peter Campbell. With musical roots deep in the socially conscious 60’s and 70’s, decades of experience performing, four albums, and a songsmith’s take on wrangling an ominous future, Peter is back on stage in 2024.
Peter’s music has been an ongoing exploration of his political and environmental concerns alongside the bitter-sweet matters of the human heart. His infectious indie folk has taken him around the world bringing audiences uplifting, challenging and often hilarious calls to healing and connection, as much as calls to action. In 2020 he wrote Waited Too Long which became the anthem for the United Nations International Summit on Domestic/Family Violence in the COVID-19 Era, a three-day online conference out of New York attended by leaders and experts from 47 countries, and opened by the Pope. In 2022, urged on by the response to Waited Too Long, Pete was convinced to return to the stage bringing with him a wealth of new music which has never been heard. In 2023 the inaugural Bundanoon Folk Festival became the platform from which Pete leapt back into the music that sustained him most of his life.
