Bio

David Pinsky and Phil Newton

 

David Pinsky and Phil Newton have been a major part of the Southern Oregon Blues scene for over thirty years and have joined forces as an acoustic/electric duo. Longtime friends, they began this new chapter by playing local venues and concerts discovering the joy of sharing their music on a whole different level.

 David's propulsive guitar, welded with Phil's harmonica chops, provide a steady groove reminiscent of the 60’s Chicago style duets.  The two on occasion will also employ a twin harp attack. Both David and Phil bring decades of vocal experience, with David concentrating on his original compositions and Phil interpreting Blues and roots.

 David and Phil are committed to Blues education and teaching Blues to local kids as well as keeping the Blues alive in the traditions of the great Delta masters.
