Hello, my name is Phil Volan. Although relatively new to Gigmasters, I have performed full time for decades in a variety of venues along the Rocky Mountain front range. I am an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist, offering both instrumentals and vocals. If you need an acoustic singer/guitarist as background music for your event, or party, I can provide a great variety of instrumental and vocal songs.

I prefer to perform weddings with my duo partner and wife, Joleen Bell. (Please see: Phil Volan and Joleen Bell at Gigmasters: Acoustic Duo, for more information). Our playing is perfect for a wedding ceremony calling for a well-arranged organic acoustic guitar vibe. In most cases, our fee will be the same as me playing solo. We offer this so we can work with each other as much as possible, because with like it! And our duets are beautiful. We have a state-of-the-art small Bose PA system, and can provide sound reinforcement for the minister as well.

Readers of the Colorado Springs Gazette and independent newspapers voted me best male singer and best folksinger for two years running. And in 2002, I won the Peak Area Performance Artist Award in the popular music category. In 2002 I earned second place at the prestigious International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship held at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.

I have much experience in the recording studio with thirteen CD releases between Joleen and I, and session work on many others. Several of my instrumentals have been featured on National Public Radio broadcasts and some along with my wife Joleen have been used in film and commercials internationally.

I look forward to working with you!

Phil and Joleen were absolutely wonderful!! The music was perfect and guests could talk while they listened without having to shout. It was an outside venue with about 50 people. They were the perfect choice. We would hire them over and over again! Thank you so much for making the party complete!

We were extremely pleased with Phil Volan and his wife. They played at my daughters wedding ceremony. The ceremony was to be outside and it started raining right before we arrived. Phil was already in the event barn playing for our guests. As soon as the rain stopped and we decided to continue to have the ceremony outside, he was very quick to set up back outside. They did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend them.
