Pete is 'one of the most important folk artists in Britain' (Mojo Magazine) a singer, musician & dancer steeped in British traditional music and was recently awarded the EFDSS gold badge. He played with the hugely influential New Victory Band, Bandoggs & Red Shift & founded Ryburn 3 Step. He has a great knowledge of ballads & broadsides & writes his own songs in fine traditional style. Pete plays melodeon, banjo, bouzouki, guitar & Appalachian dulcimer.

Pete introduces some of the lesser known versions of the Child Ballads learned from traditional singers & using a variety of printed sources to create his own interpretation of the narratives.

You are invited to bring at least one ballad to sing & talk about. To avoid clashes with other contributors, please state your preferred ballad in advance. If your choice has already been taken we will let you know so that you can choose another. If in doubt about what counts as a ballad, please use the contact email or phone to ask.
