Phil Hare is a f------genius.
Ian Prowse, Amsterdam/Pele
Tasteful, poignant singing, interesting self penned material. Make a point of seeing Phil Hare.
Cockermouth Folk Club
A passionate and skilled performer.
His guitar playing is dazzling. He has a rich voice and impassioned delivery.
If folk song is history from underneath then Phil's songs are today's broadsides.
Ian Wells: Daily Telegraph
'A Stranger I Came' is great stuff. Lovely guitar playing, singing and songs.
A brilliantly rounded and entertaining performer.
Tom Newman, (Producer/Engineer Tubular Bells)
A truly mind-bogglingly brilliant guitarist and songwriter - and a very sharp wit too. Marvellous!

If you get the chance to see Phil do not miss it.
Folk North West
Phil's playing is a brilliant fusion of feel and technique.
One of the most distinctive and technically accomplished guitarists on the scene.
International Guitar Festival
Phil Hare is a guitarist who always sounds at ease with his own playing. He plays tunes at the proper speed, doesn't try to be flash, although his technique is formidable, he also writes songs and sings some from the traditional canon. Go and see for yourself.
Truly one of the greats, one man, one guitar and one hell of a picker.
Tony Sturgill, Kentucky, USA
Excellent voice, guitar work to die for, humorous and engaging rapport with the audience. All in all one very good performance.
Les Worrall. Market Rasen Folk Club
One of the best guitar players on YouTube.
Fire in the belly material that cuts a caper.
Rock & Reel
His guitar style must be ranked amongst the greats like Carthy and yet different from the standard folk fingerpicking style.
