Have you ever performed music in front of an audience (not counting Karaoke or social jams)?

Not for over 25 years but before that yes, lots.

Do you play or are you learning a musical instrument? If so, which?

I am playing acoustic guitar and I have a P-Bass I bought in 1965. I have taken lots of music lessons over the years and need to bring it all together.

Who's your #1 favorite folk or folk-rock performer? Or, who are some of your favorites?

By far, Gordon Lightfoot. I like his story songs and the musicians he plays with. I like Arlo Guthrie, Nanci Griffith, Woody Guthrie, all the old guys. Oh, a close second is Harry Chapin. Some of his lesser known story songs.

What are some of your favorite folk or folk-rock songs?

All the "standards" are great. MTA, This Land is Your Land. Lightfoot's "Canadian Railroad Trilogy", " and "Don Quixote". Harry Chapin - "Mr. Tanner", "Story of a Life".

Tell us anything else about yourself you'd care to tell. Answering all these questions is optional, but we're interested.

Introduction

My name is Peter and I took up the guitar after about 25 years. I used to play professionally and always knew I would be taking it up when retirement time came around. Well, it's here and I'm excited!
