Bio for press use
Phil’s voice is as big as his ukulele is small, and his love of vintage blues, hokum, old-time, and jug band music shines through in his intricate picking and driving rhythms on both uke and banjo. Phil has travelled all over the UK and to Europe and the US, performing and leading workshops at festivals, theatres, and clubs. He has appeared on several albums, performed on BBC radio and TV, taught over 1500 ukulele players, and shared the stage with some of the world’s finest players.
