Phil Herndon – Flute, Saxophone, Harmonica

Phil has over 30 years as a professional musician, 20 of those years were with the Air Force Band. He has traveled all over the world, with a great sense of humor, I asked where he had played, he replied, “Churches, Bars, with Garage Bands, Funerals, Rituals, Virginity Restorations, Circumcisions and Weddings.” Quite a repertoire…… The sax, flute and harmonica gives the band it’s blues and jazz flavor and blends beautifully with the Celtic tunes.
