Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding footwork with mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jawharp and rocking keyboards adding their voices to the mix. Songs and tunes, old and new, lyrical and driving; that’s the multi-generational heart and mind of Pete's Posse, at work and at play.

In addition to this concert and workshop, Pete's Posse will also be rocking a SFMS Contradance in Mechanicsburg on Friday evening the 8th. Even if you're not a dancer, we encourage you to go see them do their thing... and come early for the beginners workshop! If you can walk, you can dance. Really.

"If you ever wondered what happiness sounds like you should come listen to Pete's Posse play a contra dance or better yet: DANCE to them."Mary Wesley, Vermont dance caller

Pete's Posse is composed of acclaimed musician Pete Sutherland (fiddle, piano, banjo and vocals), his protégé Oliver Scanlon (fiddle, mandolin, dobro, foot percussion and vocals) and the dynamic Tristan Henderson (guitars, mandolin, jaw harp, bodhran, foot percussion and vocals).
