The best kept secret in music

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Pete McDonough has been studying, performing and writing about acoustic blues for more than 40 years.  His performances present a journey through piedmont, delta and other acoustic blues styles associated with such greats as Rev. Gary Davis, Bo Carter, Mississippi John Hurt and others.  


McDonough wrote the biographies of two-dozen well-known and obscure blues artists on the 20thCentury for the “Complete Acoustic Guitar Method,” by Woody Mann, published by Wise Publications, in London, in 2014.


Pete contributed to the production of Harlem Street Singer, the award winning documentary film about the life and music of Rev. Gary Davis and recently released “Fat in Paris and Other People’s Blues,” a 12-song CD on Huckleberry Music.   The title track of the CD, “Fat in Paris” was included in “Southside Sunday Nights” a collection of some of the best open mic performances at the legendary Godfrey Daniels Coffee House in Bethlehem, Pa.
