Pete Christie – Anglicana Acoustic Rock

About

Pete Christie is a powerfully melodic and intelligent, lyrically diverse and thought-provoking singer-songwriter, and an extremely accomplished and versatile acoustic guitarist.

From his first professional group, The Skavengers, a dynamic 3-piece ska/rock outfit that began life in 1979, through to his stunning and critically acclaimed new album ‘Frank’ probably the epitome of his current solo acoustic work, Pete has proved to be a consumate songwriter, singer, performer, and entertainer.


Folking review of Pete Christie’s album ‘Frank’

January 22nd, 2011

Making Waves (above) is a fine example of why we recommend that you check out more of Pete Christie’s finely crafted vocals and simplistic finger picking style guitar tunes.  Christie’s latest album is called “Frank” and Pete’s myspace page gives some background to the album and namely why it was written as a tribute to his late mother who suffered from Dementia and called him “Frank”.  The album also features Waiting in the Wings which has become one of the Christie live standard requests.

Pete has guested with Dave Pegg of Fairport Convention – as part of the Peggy and PJ Wright tour-de-force , Nick Harper, Jeff Lang, Glenn Tillbrook, Ezio, Ruby Turner, Derrin Nauendorf, Hugh Cornwell, Bob Brozman, Martin Harley, Ben Montague and performs on occasion with Alex Roberts. In September last year was a special guest of Canadian, Americana acoustic blues and roots sensation Matt Andersen.  Check out the album it’s a great listen.

Distinctive vocalist.

Finger-style guitar technique varies from near-silence to a multi-layered wall of sound.
