A funk/soul collective layin' it down for your aural pleasures!

Peter Harper:
I play modern Folk Music with a blend of 1950-1960 soul filled vocals. I grew up surrounded in both music and art. The Folk Music Center (the store my grandparents built) has instruments, sculptures, paintings, drawings and photographs from all around the world. It is an institution of creativity. We are only able to capture a finite amount of information in one life time. How we pass that knowledge from one individual to the next determines the shape the thoughts will take root as and transform into. My family passes that information through music. My grandmother Dorothy Chase could play anything with strings. As a child, that blew my mind. My mother and both my brothers are insanely talented multi instrumentalists. And, if you have ever spent long periods of time in a music store you will know, the customers come in and play music all day. I was as inspired by the terrible ones as much as I was the great ones. Learning what not to do is as important as learning what to do.
As a Musician I am very excited about getting out into the crowds and interacting with the audience, talking to people after the shows, learning bits and pieces of the cultures and the languages of the countries I attend and the people I meet.
