Pistol Pete Wearn on Tour
At the recent Ingram Cafe Music Session one of the musicians attending and playing was Pistol Pete Wearn. He lives in Stafford but his dad – who was also entertaining at the Ingram Cafe Music Session – lives in Alnwick.
Pete has a background in blues, bluegrass and even spirituals. Having toured solo for the past five years, he’s now teamed up with Olly Parry on fiddle and Helena Francesca on backing vocals and autoharp in a new project showcasing “a gentler, more thoughtful side of his song writing”.
His new EP ‘Pistol Pete Wearn & the Wildwood Flowers’ is released in September 2019, and the band is touring to support the record.
And – good news for us – the first gig is at The Garden Rooms in Alnwick on 20 September 2019.
