Phil Beer

Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as a top flight fiddler and plays in the all-star line-up, Feast of Fiddles. But his skills don't stop there - he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing rich vocals.

Jackie Oates

Downes and Beer

This is a set of recordings from a reunion gig by Paul Downes and Phil Beer which took place at the Nettlebed Village club one dark and stormy Monday night at the beginning of 2007. There was a capacity crowd; a well stocked bar of local ales, and a good time was had by all.

Tom Palmer

Columbia House Management (in association with Chudleigh Roots) is delighted to represent Tom Palmer. Described by Mike Harding as a 'great singer -songwriter'. From gigging in small intimate venues to sell out performances with Show of Hands at The Royal Albert Hall.

Tony Rose

This project came together by happy accident, conceived over a few glasses of wine following a hectic signing session at Sidmouth 2007. For years I had been expressing regret over how little of Tony’s recorded work was out there, so it was a wonderful surprise to discover from Diggory that Laura had a collection of live recordings ready to go.
