Pete Christie and Alex Roberts Live @ The Dolphin, Blandford Forum, Dorset

March 3rd, 2012

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts Live @ The Dolphin on Wednesday, March 14th 2012 – Bringing UK Roots Movement to Blandford Forum

 

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts always have a great musical experience when they perform together. They first started performing on occasion together at ‘Sirius’; a much missed and wonderful ‘listening’ music event, at The Tudor Grange, in Bournemouth. Something unexpected and musically inspiring always happens, arising from a relaxed musical respect and a love of traditional hand made musical instruments.

 

The musical styles of Pete Christie and Alex Roberts compliment each other:

 

Pete Christie is a powerful acoustic folk and roots & Anglicana singer songwriter, who has an individualistic fingerstyle guitar technique, who plays from the heart and sings from the soul.

 

Alex Roberts blends genres from baroque to blues, with a warm soulful voice, finger-style guitar, some fine lapsteel playing, mandolin, and a stompbox to boot.

 

…the audience always get swept up in it.

Some of the live music venues that have shared Pete Christie and Alex Roberts are The Latest Music Bar in Brighton, The Half Moon, Putney and on numerous occasions, Mr Kyps, Poole, such as ‘Pete Christie and Friends’, ‘3 Guitarists’: Derrin Nauendorf, Pete Christie, Alex Roberts.

 

One very special event they performed together was Pete Christie’s music concept ‘Part 3’; a sell out collaborative event: 3 singer songwriters in a ‘songwriters’ circle’, share the stage throughout the event, with equal billing. The musicians play their solo songs and also add additional guitar technique and harmonies to each others songs. Lou Brown being the third musician.

 

Shortly after the ‘part 3’ event, the BBC aired a similar show; notably the episode with Richard Thompson, Suzanne Vega and Loudon Wainwright held special appeal for Pete Christie; who has incorporated and contemporised Richard Thompson’s ‘Beeswing‘ and Loudon Wainwright’s ‘There’ll be lots of drinking in heaven’ into his live music set.

 

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts can be heard playing, Pete Christie’s classic song ‘Waiting In The Wings’, on a live recording, done by Sound Engineer, Richard Clarke, at Mr Kyps, Poole, Dorset

In 2011, Pete joined forces with Alex Roberts in his venture to bring like minded musicians together in the UK Roots Movement alongside Wille and the Bandits, Rory Ellis, Andy Grant, The Wishbones, and Hip Route. Artists of integrity who share the true philosophy of the troubadour and offer promoters and proprietors a stable of artists of proven quality and reliability.

Tim HeywoodPresenter & Producer, Journalist, Hope FM

“Pete is an entertaining performer, adapting either to an intensely listening audience (which he prefers – who wouldn’t) or to a busy, noisy pub crowd where he is the human jukebox sitting in the corner.
He’s lively and full of anecdotes, while the music can be haunting, engaging, slapstick and /or raucous, depending on mood, atmosphere and environment.
A Pete Christie concert is always memorable, enjoyable and good.” June 8, 2011
