Featured Performer: Pete Morton
For almost thirty years, Pete Morton has toured the folk scene throughout Europe, North America and beyond, performing self-penned songs. These songs of social commentary alongside original interpretations of traditional ballads are deeply embedded with music of the British Isles. Pete gets high marks as one of the best on the contemporary roots music scene.
With a catalogue of studio albums recorded over the years, Pete regularly performs on guitar and writes. Still, he considers himself a singer first and foremost.
Often referred to as an old style troubadour, he has a compelling stage presence and approachable style. He delivers a unique unruly mix of humor, politics, love and social comment wrapping their way around the tradition. Songs like “Another Train” and “When We Sing Together” have become folk club standards.
If you want to hear what’s best in contemporary roots music, then be sure to listen in on Pete Morton’s Show!
