ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over hi-powered guitar and pounding footwork. Mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jawharp and rocking keyboards adding their voices to the mix. Old songs and tunes lyrical and driving along side brand new ones. That's the multi-generational heart and mind of Pete's Posse at work and at play.

The well known multi-instrumentalist and troubadour Pete Sutherland has decades of concert touring, teaching and studio production behind him. His all-Vermont “Posse” includes his talented young fiddle protégé and fellow Clayfoot Strutter, Oliver Scanlon, and the uber-dynamic musician Tristan Henderson. Featuring Pete's rootsy songs, the band’s original and traditional fiddle music, and a few unique covers, this band provides a fine opportunity for an intimate listen to an ever-evolving musical friendship that spans generations!

Pete's Posse launched their first (self-titled) CD (Epact 120) in the fall of 2014 with a nine-week cross-country tour, playing concerts and contradances in 17 states. The joy of building an ever-more rock-solid sound while exploring the edges of the fiddle-band genre, and the buzz they created across the contradance diaspora propelled them headlong into making plans for 2015: a follow-up CD and a busy schedule of local and regional gigs.

"For three people who initially weren't going to become a band some things, like their chemistry together, were meant to be." - Dillon Walsh, The Vermont Standard

"Such a treat getting to work with you guys last night! Rockin' tunes and great energy on-stage." - Kalia Kliban, CA Dance Caller

"A great big "Thank You!" to Pete's Posse for the wonderful contra dance music last night at Chantilly Hall in Charlotte! Pete, Oliver and Tristan do an amazing job of creating the perfect sound for our danced minded feet!" - Sandy Brand, Charlotte Dancer

"We've had a lot of house concerts but the one last night with Pete's Posse was an eleven on the awesomeness scale. We can only try to imagine what it would be like to DANCE to their energetic, driving sets!" - Joyce Miller, Grass Valley CA
