bio

Phil Dawson is a guitar player whose work has spanned jazz, African, Latin and Brazilian music traditions together with those more likely to cross the radar of someone with a similar British background: Roots reggae, punk rock, blues, soul, R’n’B and funk.
He happens to have performed and/or record with a selection of iconic artists from the four compass points of Africa: Khaled (North); Osibisa and Tony Allen (West); Mulatu Astatke (East) and Hugh Masekela (South) as well as a bunch of other people detailed on the ‘live’ page… There is a sample discography here.
