Wow! What an absolutely amazing chance to catch an artist of this calibre, and master of his craft, up close and personal in the beautiful Tea Tray cafe in Osborne Road!
“Virtuosity, intensity and charisma…bravely original!” (John Walters, The Guardian)
Most of you will know Phil as one half of award-winning roots stars Edgelarks, (with Hannah Martin), who have been established on the scene for many years now, but this is a very rare chance to catch him on his own and on the road – an evening that will inspire the mind and lighten the soul. As always, these Tea Tray shows are limited in numbers and this WILL sell out!
“Beautiful and perfectly crafted melodies…his elaborate creations sound more like the work of a band than just one man…it feels like he has harnessed the power of time itself!” (Artree)
Since his journey to Kolkata to study under the great slide guitarist Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya, Phil’s solo work reflects a life spent travelling the globe, collecting tunes, stories and instruments!
From music written whilst kangaroo spotting in Australia, to tunes learnt from a Canadian maestro on First Nations reservation land in Canada, songs of the road, and pieces written by musician friends from Kent to Kolkata, his music’s diversity is matched by only the virtuosity of his playing.
“Sublime in the extreme!” (Guitarist Magazine)
One musician, one instrument is the guiding principle; yet instruments range from mellow Weissenborn depths to spectacular Dobro flourishes, to the sounds of the rare Indian Chaturangui (a 22 string guitar from the sub-continent!). As well as his collection of guitars, his show-stopping beatbox harmonica, a great favourite with audiences, is sure to make an appearance.
Here is a fusion of styles deeply infused with Henry’s British folk roots, and bought together with a considered beauty all his own.
