About

£5,067

Thank you for visiting my crowdfunding page for making my next album.  Since the making of the compilation of most requested songs with Full House, 'Game of Life', I've been often asked, "When is the next CD of original songs coming out?"  Well, I'm proud to say, I'm on the case😊

I've a long list of new self-penned songs, traditional gems and classics from fellow folk artists I'm planning to hone down to about 12 songs.  I'm really looking forward to getting into the studio with some top folk musicians and making the whole thing happen.  The project is off the ground with rehearsals already taking place with folk singer and multi- instrumentalist Matt Quinn, who I had the privilege of working with in Mick Ryan's 'A Day's Work'.  Matt will be helping with arrangements, helping choose our fellow travellers, and general artistic direction.  

As many of you may know, I've been recording albums for a long time (1987 was the first one!) and the last three were for the Cumbrian label, Fellside, who after 40 years of releasing a wide variety  fantastic folk records, decided to call it a day last year.  Therefore, it was time to go it alone.  Your support in making this album would be eternally appreciated, with a number of rewards stated in the margin of this page.  I hope you can help and look forward to sharing the end result with you all!  Many thanks and best wishes, Pete 

Risks and challenges

The challenge of making the new album will be covering the cost of studio time, musicians, artwork and manufacturing.
