The new Phil Hare CD album was released on Monday 28th September 2015 and is called 'The Twilight Tone'. It is purely my voice and guitar, it features a handful of new, original songs - plus seven 'folk guitar' instrumentals - and was recorded and produced in Steeton, West Yorkshire by Jon Harvison in June 2015.

Contractual obligation - in addition to competition from streaming and downloading - means that the album will retail for £4.99 (£6.99 inc. postage and packing) and will (save for some specialist outlets) be exclusively available from us at either gigs, or through the website and via the PAYPAL facility.

In addition, we have registered with Tunecore so Twilight Tone will soon be
available for streaming/downloading piecemeal from ITunes, Amazon Music,
Tidal and beyond. Watch this space.
