Check out Pete's Blaydon Races 2012, with a version sung by Graeme Danby on the DVD Passin' The Folks Alang The Road, which tells the story of George Ridley's life in words and music. The DVD is available from JG Windows in Newcastle.
The rewrite of the Blaydon Races was given an airing at the North East Proms concert at Newcastle City Hall on Saturday October 20th, with a full orchestra and massed choir - quite a sound!
Look out for the Big River Big Songs DVD being advertised on ITV. Pete has three Joe Wilson songs on it: Mally Didn't Come, The Gallowgate Lad with a great vocal by Judy Dinning and Johnny Dickinson playing slide guitar,
plus Ne Wark.
The DVD also includes a Charlie Hardwick interview, with Pete talking about his love for Joe Wilson's work and his approach to setting Joe's words to music.
I'll be updating the news page regularly, so keep calling back from time to time.
I've had a number of people contact me who recall gigs that I've done, (sometimes blasts from the past!), so I've tried to bring a balance to the site in terms of my previous work, and what I'm currently involved in.
I've also put links to some friends' sites on the contact page, so why not look them up too?
Thanks for visiting. Hope to see you around.
