Swindon welcomes Dorset Guitarist for a Jubilee Live Music Event

June 13th, 2012

A lively set on Sunday 3 June afternoon, with a listening audience who bought lots of albums; what could be a better way to spend time for a musician like Pete Christie, who works hard to deliver a balanced singer-songwriter set of folk, blues, rock and ballads.

The audience showed lots of appreciation for the varied original anglicana set and a few covers, done in Pete’s unique acoustic fingerstyle technique. One such song is the ‘Ballad Of Lucy Jordan’, originally recorded by Dr. Hook and popularised by Marianne Faithfull. Pete Christie has been gaining some great compliments for this exciting adaptation which incorporates some dynamic looping and echo effects.

 

Pete is well known for performing a longer set and today was no exception, especially as some people had been watching the Jubilee celebrations.

 

Pete Christie is back again on Sunday, October 14th 2012 at 3pm.
