"not only impressive but a revelation......totally original." The Guardian "
Folk singer Pete Morton is a songwriter and performer with a wealth of great songs and stage presence. His shows are dynamic and intense, while remaining approachable and fun loving. With well known songs such as 'Another Train', 'The Shepherds Song', and 'The Two Brothers', he constantly tours, either solo, performing his own material as well as with other projects, such as his one man theatre show, 'The Millers Tale with the songs of Bob Dylan', or his annual December Christmas show with Maggie Boyle and Chris Parkinson. In 2012, he began a traditional folk music project with Roger Wilson called 'The Dustpan and Brush traditional folk music show'. There is also his recent venture into 'Folk Rap', marrying choruses from the tradition and verses full of contemporary issues, that are delivered with 'knitting machine' speed. They have proven to be a great hit! He will also be touring new material with a trio in the Lowlands in the Spring of 2014 to co-incide with the release of a new album.
His highly acclaimed last album 'Economy', was released in 2011, and included the fabulous rant: 'The Sock on the Line', the much loved 'India', the anthemic 'When we Sing Together' and the 9 minute talkin' blues 'In the days when time was different'. A new album of Pete's songs is due for release in 2013.
