Interview with Phil Cook on the Scenic Route

Phil Cook is a Wisconsin-born multi-instrumentalist residing in Durham, North Carolina who’s been a frequent contributor to bands like Megafaun, Bon Iver, and Hiss Golden Messenger. Following a deep love of gospel and the roots of American musical styles, Cook plays bluesy and soulful tunes on both guitar and piano, including his most recent album of solo piano entitled All These Years from 2021. He joins Will Moore on The Scenic Route to talk about his musical upbringing in Chippewa Falls, WI, and how it sparked a deep love of Southern gospel that’s led to a record label, a successful career, and amazing musical relationships.

Phil Cook will be part of the annual Unplugged concert at North House Folk School this Thursday and Friday, Sept. 22-23.
