August 30th, 2023Blues and roots-style: Manning plays the ‘maine
A veteran of the music industry in Australia, Phil Manning has been at the forefront of blues and roots style music for over five decades, first coming to public attention as a member of the now legendary Chain, a rock/blues band of the sixties and seventies, which still performs to this day.
Local music lovers now have the opportunity to catch him performing live this Saturday in Castlemaine.
Throughout his career Phil has displayed great talent on both the electric and acoustic guitar, absorbing influences from folk, blues, country and world genres and crafting them into his unique style.
His energetic playing and relaxed delivery have made him an engaging artist who presents both traditional songs and a wealth of original music, much of it based on his personal interpretation of the many recurring themes in blues and folk history. Phil will play at The Taproom, Castlemaine on Saturday, September 2.
