from the Club or ring to book (01234 376278)
A superb evening with a
very talented half of Show of Hands!
Phil is one of the most
popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist,
he is perhaps best known as a top flight fiddler and also plays in the all-star
line-up, Feast of Fiddles. But his skills don't stop there - he also plays
slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American
cuatro, not to mention contributing rich vocals.
Born in Exminster, Devon,
he started to play fiddle, guitar and mandolin while still at school in
Teignmouth and habitually credits Davey Graham's Folk, Blues & Beyond
as his inspiration for acoustic music.
He played his first gig
at 14 and started working as a duo with Paul Downes in 1974 (their Live
at Nettlebed CD has been released). He was then in the Arizona Smoke Revue
and a key member of Johnny Coppin's band. His impressive track record also
includes touring with Mike Oldfield and being a member of the feted Albion
Band from 1984-1991. Show of Hands became a full-time partnership in the
early 90's. A band that has gone on to sell out the Royal Albert Hall three
times and who were voted Best Live Act, by the public, at the 2004 Folk
Awards. There have been more awards since then!
