0

Phillips, Grier & Flinner will be at The Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant on Thursday, August 15th.

From the Redwoods to the Rockies to the Blue Ridge Mountains, the members of Phillips, Grier & Flinner are considered to be among today’s finest acoustic instrumentalists.  The trio is well-loved for their clear, sparse sound that focuses on bluegrass melodies.

With Todd Phillips on bass, David Grier on guitar, and Matt Flinner on Mandolin, this acoustic trio is sure to thrill with amazing skills on strings. This concert is noted as a “reunion show,” as the trio is not often touring together.

Todd Phillips (bass) is one of the founders of the new acoustic movement. An original member of the David Grisman Quintet, he has recorded two solo albums (including the Compass release Timeframe) and has been featured with countless bands and projects including New Grange, The Bluegrass Album Band and the Grammy-winning True Life Blues which he also produced.

David Grier (guitar) is one of today’s top bluegrass lead guitarists. He has four solo albums to his credit and has appeared on over 90 albums including recordings by Mark O’Connor, Jerry Douglas, Alison Brown and Psychograss. He is a three-time winner of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Guitar Player of the Year award.

Matt Flinner (mandolin) is one of the most recognized mandolinists in bluegrass music today. He has recorded three solo albums for Compass Records (Walking on the Moon, The View From Here and Latitude), both of which are stand out releases in the acoustic music genre. In addition to his work with Phillips, Grier, and Flinner, this versatile instrumentalist has toured with Leftover Salmon (on banjo) and leads the Matt Flinner Quartet.

The concert starts at 7:30 and reservations are recommended.

Dinner reservations are recommended before the show. The Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant has an ample menu featuring farm to table foods, including desserts made on the premises with local ingredients. The Restaurant also serves a collection of local brews and exceptional wines.
