Bio

Peter grew up in the folk clubs of North Yorkshire, England where, somehow he also developed an affinity for bluegrass and country.His influences range from Hoagie Carmichael to Sir Walter Scott to Mark Knopfler. He has opened for June Tabor, Peter Bellamy and appeared on stage with Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, Paul Stuckey, Allen Damron and many others.

Roger grew up learning the work songs of the coal regions of Pennsylvania, and the traditional Celtic music of his family and the people of the area. Along with learning how to play the bodhran he learned a bit about shipbuilding and sailing. This provided him with the opportunity to develop a love for the shanties and work songs of the sea and the seafaring life. The bodhran became a natural accompaniment for these strong hard-driven songs. Over the years Roger has incorporated the Celtic influences with his love of the sea and its music.
