Robert Phillipps

Bob has been exploring traditional folk music since the early 90s, first as a guitarist, later adding banjo and mandolin. He has played with various local community ensembles, including Roaring Jelly, Strathspey and Reel Society of New Hampshire, Boston Scottish Fiddle Club, and OH! CONTRAire. As a member of the trio Blue Parrot, he performed at the New England Folk Festival (NEFFA), BCMFest, Boston Athenaeum, and other events and venues in the area. Bob has competed numerous times at the Lowell Banjo and Fiddle Contest, taking home ribbons for his performances of 19th century classic banjo tunes. These days Bob enjoys sharing tunes and banter with Thom Roach.
