Pete, who once described himself as “a rocker who lost his way”, is a fine folk/acoustic musician who has a good hand on the guitar and a lovely relaxed voice.
Anna is part of the furniture at Acoustic Routes Nelson Music Club. She has played acoustic and folk music most of her life and has performed solo and as a member of the groups Msconceptions and Cairde over many years too. Anna is a clever finger style guitarist who has a clear singing voice. She is a great harmony singer.
When these two folkies get together they perform a range of material sourced from performers like ‘Show of Hands’, Mick Hanly, Mike Silver and others. The music is melodic and rhythmic and the harmonies are rich and well blended. They use two guitars or Bass and Guitar with combinations of rhythm and picking threaded together in a way which adds to the overall richness of sound.
