Phill Saylor Wisor's devoted study of clawhammer banjo, the Sacred Harp singing tradition and the masters and manuscripts of old-time music, combined with a genuine and profound writing ability of his own, contribute to an artist who will only be increasingly visible as an important fixture on the American songwriting scene.
Ben Sidelinger joins Phill with almost psychic abilities. Drawing from a diverse musical background in jazz and flamenco, his homemade dobro seamlessly outlines Wisor's guitar and banjo creating an effect of one single, highly sophisticated instrument.
Then there's the vocals... Wisor and Sidelinger's voices in harmony create a haunting and deeply
resonating effect that often drives the songs and their listeners to a point of transcendence.
These guys have honed their skills and an opportunity to catch them live is a
fortunate one indeed. Riding a 50/50 split on traditional tunes and originals their show is well-rounded and highly entertaining.
