Philip John Lee

Philip John Lee is a genuinely exceptional Flamenco guitarist. A guitarist of the ‘old school’, he learnt in the traditional way at a time when Flamenco was generally considered the sole province of Andalusians and the Gypsies.

Philip’s debut album was released in 1969 and received wide critical acclaim selling over 250,000 copies. Since then, Philip has given many concerts in Britain and Europe including recitals at London’s world famous Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room. He has also broadcast on radio and television. During a ten year residence in Los Angeles Philip was regularly heard on KPFK Radio LA and was resident soloist and accompanying guitarist at Hollywood’s renowned El Cid restaurant. Other appearances include both the LA and Fresno Convention Centres. Philip has recently returned to England and has settled in West London where he is concentrating on teaching and recording.
