Donnie Campbell & Jinks O'Neill
Donnie Campbell and Jinks (James) O'Neill started performing together in 2014. Both are from Sydney and grew up in musical households. They have travelled extensively with their music, Donnie with folk music and Jinks with rock and roll bands, giving them a vast repertoire of music from the folk revival, classic country, rock and roll of the 1950s and '60s as well as traditional music of Ireland, Scotland and Cape Breton. Donnie has been host of one of the longest running radio programs in Canadian history, Celtic Serenade, a run that is almost 45 years long. Hosted primarily on CJCB, the program made the move at the beginning of 2017 to The Coast and continues with listenership from all over the world. The program promotes not only Cape Breton music but that from the Celtic Diaspora.
