Mr Phil Thorne

No formal qualifications
Instruments: Guitar
Genre/Style(s): Pre-war country blues both fingerpicking and slide styles.
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I teach acoustic blues guitar and bottleneck slide guitar in the style of the pre-war blues masters. Students may be beginners or experienced players.

I have been playing this music for over 40 years and have studied with John Jackson, John Cephas, Philadelphia Jerry Rick’s, Michael Roach, John Miller and others.

I have successfully taught slide guitar to individuals and groups as well fingerpicking.

As a performer I have played in the North at numerous venues including several appearances on the Acoustic Stage of the Colnr R&B Festival. Around my home in Kent I have performed at local pubs as well as at several London venues.

I am anxious to pass on my knowledge and skills to others who share my interest in blues music.
