If you saw the Guitar Heroes show at MusicFest, you’ll want to see this one, too!
The Pete Anderson Trio performs as part of the Vancouver Island MusicFest Concert Series on Aug. 2 at the Cumberland Hotel.
Known as a pioneer in the roots-rock genre and an early champion of the Americana movement, Anderson is a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning producer and ground-breaking guitarist, who melds blues and country to forge a style all his own.
He had a hand in introducing the world to artists such as Michelle Shocked, Lucinda Williams, Jim Lauderdale, Rosie Flores and perhaps most famously, his musical partner of 20 years, Dwight
In addition to being a producer/musician, Anderson is also a businessman creating his own independent record label, Little Dog Records, over 15 years ago. Little Dog Records has released records from a cross section of artists that represent a wide range of American roots music, including Pete’s own solo work.
Anderson’s talent, work ethic, and innovative spirit have not only set him apart from the herd, but ensure his continued presence as a bright point in the future of the American music scene.
