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.

August 20th, 2010

Americana acoustic blues and roots meets Anglicana acoustic folk rock

Matt Andersen

Canadian blues roots guitar

“Matt is the most outstanding live blues/Americana performer you will ever see”

Pete Christie

Acoustic Folk Rock

The way he explores rhythm and the dynamics of the instrument is a real education. His use of the loop station, and a few subtle dabs on his effects pedals, layering rhythms and sounds, is mesmerising.
