Payin' Dues: Phil Gammage
The bluesman on Nashville-style songwriter circles and Magic Sam’s sliding ninths
New York-based singer and guitarist Phil Gammage honed his craft in post-punk outfit Certain General before embarking on a solo career, issuing such landmark albums as 1990’s Night Train and the following year’s Kneel To The Rising Sun. He founded Adventures In Bluesland as an acoustic trio in late 2013. The group’s current line-up is completed by lap steel guitarist Don Fiorino, bassist Johnny Cement, saxist and keyboardist Robert Aaron and drummer Kevin Tooley.
