Phil Hare is an acoustic guitarist, troubadour, and mentor.
Inspired to buy an acoustic guitar in 1977 after discovering the words and music of Roy Harper, John Martyn and Mike Chapman, Phil started writing folksy ballads and songs and doing ‘floor spots’ around the many folk clubs in his native Wirral and neighbouring Liverpool. Since then Phil has built a successful career playing at festivals, clubs and venues across the country, and has an extensive catalogue of recorded music. His distinctive and accomplished guitar style means Phil is in great demand as a solo performer, band member (he was in local folk rock band Full House), and guest musician.
Described as an all-purpose acoustic guitar hero and singer-songwriter Phil, who now lives in the Cambridgeshire town of March, will be making a rare and highly anticipated return to Liverpool in October. Expect fine songs, exceptional musicianship, and a possible surprise guest or two!
Support on the night is from Katie Nicholas, now back in Liverpool after a stint in London and York and Katie and Marc Vormawah
