Some Reviews

"A Beautiful and delicate web of hypnotic guitar, he captivated the audience with his magical acoustic style how many guitarists today are capable of such elaborate guitar playing?

he makes it all seem so effortless"

Steve Harris

"The songs are in the romanitc, lyrical, almost troubadour style, sometimes brittle, sometimes smoky vocals,...if Messrs Renbourn or Jansch are looking for new material, then try The |River or Selkies Daughter some Fine Melodies".

Mike Cooper FOLK ROOTS

"Phils subtle mix of Irish, Scottish and English Balledeering is Authentic and warming"
