One of the great things about editing AustralianBluegrass.com is we get to bring interesting articles and good news stories about bluegrass and old-time music happenings.
Sadly today we announce that one of the more disappointing aspects of our work includes the announcement of a musicians tragic loss of their instruments.
Phil Jones is a well known and highly respected Western Australian musician who has lived and performed in both the UK and Australia as both a solo artist and band member. Phil has (had) a wonderful collection of guitars to support his musical endeavours. This past weekend thieves broke into Phil’s house in the Perth suburb of Baldivis. Thieves left with a variety of the owner’s belongings including Phil’s personal guitar collection.
This is a crime so low that it requires all the help we can muster to help re-unite Phil and his guitar family. A musician deprived of his instruments is somewhat like a mate loosing a loved one.
