Gig Review – Phil Beer
I went to an intimate Phil Beer gig hosted by Black Duck Folk at the weekend. I’d not listened to any of his stuff before but was really glad I made the effort to go out on a cold, miserable January night.
Phil Beer is an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist folk musician and he entertained us with a selection of his own music and his interpretation of a wide range of English & American folk and country songs.
Blurb from his website:
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 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.
