Our featured artists this year are:
Although Isabella has learned the piano, percussion and singing, she was already fascinated by the chromatic harmonica since childhood so the chromatic harmonica has always been her main interest. She has been teaching our instrument since 1997 and played weekly concerts before Covid. She has played in the large Musikvereinssaal, in the Wiener Konzerthaus, and also in Chicago and North Korea. One of her students became world champion in 2013 at the World Harmonica Festival in Trossingen.
Phil had chromatic lessons with Tommy Reilly in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Since then he has played harmonica for many London theatre productions including Porgy and Bess (Savoy Theatre), Gone With The Wind (New London Theatre), From Here To Eternity (Shaftesbury Theatre) and the London premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins (Donmar Warehouse).
Phil has played harmonica in many different settings including the ITV show This Morning, in concert with the London Sinfonietta, on tour in the USA with Phil Coulter and Liam Clancy, and on CD with Leon Redbone. He plays in the UK jazz group The Toots Project.
