Winner Saltburn Festival Songwriting Competiton 2008

Phil won the 2008 Saltburn Folk Festival Songwriting Competition.
As well as picking up a cheque for £100, Phil was awarded the Keith Marsden Memorial Trophy and performed his winning composition 'Song for Jackie'
in front of a Sunday concert audience of over 200, to a rousing reception.
Main stage performers The Wilson Family and The Sands Family were extremely complimentary about Phil's song and performance, and at the Closing Session Phil once again performed the song to a tremendous reception.
