A musician described by Radio 2’s Jim Lloyd as “a one-man folk industry” will be rolling into Darnick on Friday.

Singer-songwriter Pete Coe is an expert in all aspects of the British folk tradition and entertains with songs, wit and brilliant musicianship.

During the ‘70s he toured and recorded with Chris Coe and was a member of the legendary New Victory Band.

Since 1985 he has become widely known for his solo performances with his distinctive voice, eclectic material and wide-ranging instrumental skills.

Among the – literal – strings to his bow are the bouzouki, Appalachian dulcimer, banjo and melodeon.

When not performing or writing he can be found teaching songs, music and dance to children via numerous school appearances and festival workshops. He is also a country dance caller.

“Every aspiring young performer needs to watch this man,” says Paul Davenport of English Dance and Song magazine.
