Pete Christie concert Performance at Beehive Studio

A rare chance to enjoy the self-penned songs and music from one of the South Coast’s foremost singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarists. With 40 years of musical experiences, you can expect a journey through a marvellously genre-unspecific soundscape. A distinctive and accomplished vocalist, with finger-style guitar technique varying from near-silence to a multi-layered wall of sound, Pete is renowned for exploring the entire range of sounds available from an acoustic guitar.

Lyrically diverse, his songs cover rain, pain, cars and trains, frustration, joy, and dashes of anger and wry humour thrown in for good measure!
