"I received a copy of Sound of Taransay and have been playing it on my radio show, I absolutely love it! A great variety of tracks and such great music. Seldom do I pick up an album that so quickly becomes a favourite but this is quality from start to finish. (And by the way - I LOVE the cover and ALL the art work too - gorgeous!)"

Shona McMillan, Celtic Reflections



" I have had the pleasure of listening to this first solo recording of Phil's and have not been disappointed. The flute playing is sweet, as are the tunes, many of which are his own compositions. The variety and choice of material struck me by it's sheer musicality. This is a welcome addition to my CD collection and I am sure you are going to enjoy it as much as I have."

Iain MacDonald



" I met Phil for the first time in 1982, when he was on tour in Brittany with the inimitable Tannahill Weavers. It was also the first time I ever heard a flute flanked by such an intense instrument like the Highland pipes on one side and an ardent artillery of strings on the other. How he coped with that line-up, I still don't know, but to this day I remember Phil as a real pioneer. Innovators should get a medal for bravery!

A great CD! Thanks for your music Phil and for the lesson too, et bonne route ! "


Jean-Michel Veillon
