What could I possibly say about Phil that has not already been said.So I will just repeat what others say superb musician great guy.
Steve & Phil are just as good as it ever gets.
I shall only quote from a Spiral Earth Review
"Show of Hands are widely touted as Englands most popular accoustic roots duo"
(And so say all of us !!)
I first met Pete many years ago I was in awe then & nothings changed. Described "As a One man folk industry" Pete is certainly that also well loved & highly respected.
I met Ian when I was booked to do support for him. he has a truly stunning voice
I have caught up with him on countless gigs since
& his performances are always full of passion for his music & fun with his audience
Bob & I met at Teignmouth Festival his voice has a quality that is hard to describe without sounding girley !But it is without doubt warm,rich, & full of sentiment when sentiment is called for. superb guitar work & humour is always on the menu
Sara & I met so long ago when I was hosting a night at The Country House Folk Club. My long friendship with her will not prevent me from saying that she is without doubt one of the most warm competent performers on the circuit. Her knowledge & love for her art is tangible
with stories & songs that draw you in & keep you suspended & I havent yet mentioned her amazing banjo playing & the work she now does with her son Kieron and what can I say about him except he like Sara has developed a most engaging style
and his soul like his Mom''''s is full of beautiful music.
I was blown away at the Bideford Festival when I heard Chris sing, when his song ended no one wanted to break the silence it would have spoiled the amazing atmosphere he had created.
After buying his album I discovered he like me has a great passion for writing about the West Country.I am pleased to say Chris has agreed to guest on my next album
