"Cambodian singer/guitarist Vanntin Hoeurn, and British singer/guitarist R.J. Marshall, create the uncompromisingly raw musical duo, the Phnom Devils. Combining English and Khmer language, they have re-imagined early-20th Century “Mekong Delta” blues into a visceral musical experience you won’t soon forget."

He plays a lot of American folk and country as well as his own original material. With 25 years of songwriting experience he tells stories of life and love that shine a light through the darkness. We hope you will look forward to joining us in a great night of fun and music Saturday at The Magic Sponge."
