Grounds and Sounds Café welcomes Phil Minissale to the stage on Friday, August 8, 2014 at 8 p.m. Combining contemporary songwriting with the traditional finger styling of the blues masters, Phil is an American roots musician, and his unique modern old-time blues style on vocals and guitar has captivated audiences from coast to coast. His nostalgic sound is a warm reminder of the Greenwich Village acoustic scene of the early 60s.
“He’s got the soul and he’s got the chops to get it across to his listeners. The soul of his guitar is juxtaposed by his youthful vocal quality, which is actually quite refreshing, not to mention encouraging to any bluesman of the twenty-first century.” Richard Jordan
"Like diamonds in the grass, Phil's songs wait for discovery. They are shining, gleaming fragments of life beautifully grafted, faithfully delivered and artistically rendered. Phil has a soft tenor and phrasing that hearkens to the ancestral giants." Mark Gresser
