VIA_PORTANOVA_front_coverbutton‘Via-Portanova’ – Art PhillipsThis recording is inspired by my Italian upbringing, the love and passion of life, family and the music that was shared in my grandpa’s home in Erie, Pennsylvania USA where he immigrated from Montenero Val Cocchiara, Molise (Isernia) Italy in 1901. My musical path and passion for the arts was steered by this wonderful upbringing. My father, grandpa and I would play the selections contained on this album many a night in my grandpa’s kitchen, with family gathered all around.-
