NEW ALBUM RELEASE 29th April 2016:

Pleased that my mp3 album 'Don't Blame Me' is finally available for sale. Originally released in January entitled 'ECLECTICITY' it hit a copyright problem and has at last been re-released with a new title and new artwork. DON'T BLAME ME is the new album title and it's available as an mp3 download album on this website now and soon through my channels at CD Baby, iTunes & Amazon.

 >> 4th June - 2pm In Concert at C3 Church in Whitianga, as part of the Mercury Bay Music Festival.
The publicity says "Featuring top artists from New Zealand, Australia and the USA, including Don McGlashan, Mel Parsons, Miho’s Jazz Orchestra, Hobnail, Hamilton County Blue Grass Band, legendary Kiwi blues-man Darcy Perry with special guests Mark Dennison and the Brass in Pocket band". This will be an amazing event.

I'll be knocking out a 45 min set sometime between 3pm and 5.50 (sorry I can't be more specific but surely you'll be coming along for the whole session anyway?).

Got to love the way Fiona pronounces the name "Lancasheer"
so beautifully.

"Australia", Live at Titirangi Folk Music Club, Auckland.

<<Click Here>> to listen to "Kathy's Song", Live at the MSG Club ('The Guild') Reunion Concert. Phil chose to perform this song because of its English roots and because it was the first song he ever performed on guitar at the Guild, back in 1966. Compere? The inimitable Stanley Accrington of course.
