Peter Janson

Peter Janson is an acclaimed award-winning contemporary solo guitarist, composer, and music educator with recordings reaching No. 2 in Billboard (Billboard Heat Seekers – Old Black Roller, Grant Maloy-Smith) and performances at Carnegie Hall Weill Recital Hall, the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Healdsburg Guitar Festival, the Argenta Acoustic Music Series in Little Rock, the WUMB Music Festival in Boston, and many other festivals and venues throughout North America. He has had three solo albums in the Top Five of the NAR radio charts and his recordings have over one-million BMI verified broadcasts across all media. In performance, Peter prefers a repertoire that offers variety rather than concentrating on one specific style, and he presents contemporary solo guitar music that reveals his interest in weaving common elements of Jazz, Folk/Traditional, Celtic, European, and improvisational music. His musical passion, artistry, and technical mastery have earned him critical acclaim: “a hearty standing ovation from the packed house” (Broadway World, NY), “Acoustic Guitarists Astonish!” (The Orion News, Chico CA), “absolutely one of the best, heartfelt, acoustic players today” (Grammy winning producer, Chuck Ebert), “a gifted acoustic fingerstyle player” (Dirty Linen Magazine), and “a rare 10+” (Spirit of Change Magazine).
