Phil Douglas

Phil Douglas

I live in Northern Utah. I work for the Utah Wildlife Department (30 years in the wildlife business!). Being at campfires was something I grew up doing and my Dad introduced me at a young age to the harmonica. It has been a companion at my campfires since then! In honor of the role the harmonica has played in my life, I created my own brand "The Campfire Companion
"Gifts of Music and Nature are Companions for Life!"
