Bio
Phil Hansen has been performing as a vocalist and guitarist in the greater Puget Sound Region for many years. His main acoustic guitar interests center on the Contemporary Fingerstyle and Contemporary Flatpicking arenas. His fun, informative, and entertaining shows would consist of an eclectic mix of ragtime, ragtime/blues, jazz standards, blues, pop, and folk material performed with vocals. Phil performs as a solo, with a bass accompanist, or with the progressive bluegrass band The VZ Valley Boys.

As a performing musician since the middle 1960s Phil has performed as a solo performer and has worked with many groups and venues. He performed with Cassandra (1977-86), Phil & Kathye (1986-92), Squirrel Heads and Gravy (1996-2005), and currently plays as a solo and with the VZ Valley Boys. He has been an orchestra pit musician for 6 musicals and played with the East Side Gospel Orchestra (1989-1992). He has performed in many venues including state and county fairs, street fairs, restaurants, coffee houses, festivals, weddings, parties, and even business meetings.

In addition to his work as a solo and group performer Phil has been a full time music teacher since 1973 and has taught at 2 local colleges, 2 high schools, and in many music stores since that time. He has also written four published guitar manuals, and many assorted articles on guitar styles and techniques.
