Phil has been involved in folk since the 60s, albeit with a 20-year break from active involvement.  In the early 70s, he was part of an electric folk group, Alderley Edge, with Malc Gurnham and David Parr, performing all over the Midlands area.

He also got together with David Parr in a more traditional folk trio with John Meechan, Coolin.

When Nuneaton Arts Centre was being set up, Phil got involved, so it was no surprise that Coolin were the hosts of the folk club that opened there.
