Thanks to Spiral Earth for this great review!

“A fascinating record…. Whether you play an instrument and want to sit and marvel at Phillip Henry’s virtuoso instrumental skills or just want to listen to some carefully crafted songs, there is something for all on this record. What more could you want?”

Hugely pleased with this review of True North from Fatea Magazine - thanks to David Pratt for writing it:

“In a world at times seemingly awash with superlatives, there may be a danger that the power of some words might be diluted through overuse; however, what is clear with regards to Phillip Henry is that the listener is clearly in the presence of a singularly talented virtuoso musician.

True North is a spellbinding release which manages to distill 10 years of world travel and musical influences into an album which not only reaches the ears, but also touches the soul and heart. The world is a better place for its release.”

I was so pleased with the amazing job Sam Cooke did on the artwork and graphic design of True North. He also created a series of art posters for the tour, so I thought I’d show them to you now - slightly adulterated with some gig details..!

Here’s info for my Bristol gig - hoping to see some of your friendly faces at the Folk House on November 11th:

Very pleased that I’m this week’s featured session on @balconytvexeter

Kalyan Variations, involving the Chaturangui (Indian slide guitar), and look out for the electric fan too.

Balcony TV has sessions all over the world, but we’re especially proud to have one in Exeter, as other than that it’s only in Brighton and London within the UK. And you can vote to support the video if you watch it on their website, which would of course be much appreciated 😚🎶🎵📹📸🌟

I’m hugely looking forward to taking my workshop / masterclass for slide guitar out on the road for the very first time! At these few gigs, you can sign up for a workshop on the afternoon of the concert, either separately from coming to the evening gig, or as a combined package. I’ll answer questions on technique and explain the stories of my various instruments from all over the world. Please share and spread the word!
