Pete has been a professional musician since 1971, playing at festivals concerts, clubs, dances & schools throughout Britain, Europe, Asia, New Zealand & USA . During the ‘70s he toured and recorded  with Chris Coe, was a member of the legendary New Victory Band & with Nic Jones, Tony Rose and again, Chris Coe, he was a member of Bandoggs.  In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s he toured and recorded with Red Shift but since 1985 he's mainly worked as a soloist & earned an enviable  reputation.

His strong, distinctive voice is enhanced by his instrumental versatility, the ringing  strings of his bouzouki, the sweet chords of his mountain dulcimer, the plaintive  frailing banjo & the pulsing reeds of his melodeon. He's also a country dance caller,  creator & band musician. He sings, plays & step dances, sometimes all at once!

Harp and a Monkey

Support: TBC


Tickets £8 from the Globe or Wegottickets.com

Back by popular demand after an incredible gig at the Globe in 2014; The harp ‘n’ banjo driven electro-folk-storytelling of Harp and a Monkey is imbued with a deep Lancashire sensibility that shines through in their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life, love and remembrance. Expect to hear harps, banjos, glockenspiels, melodicas, electro beats and classic songsmithery colliding in a unique mash-up that is both deeply traditional and yet modern. Formed in 2008, the band have built up a strong following around northern England via relentless gigging - there is nowhere they've played where they haven't been invited back.
