Peter and Gloria have performed together regularly in the Lakeshore area for over 20 years at festivals, clubs, museums, and private events. Their voices and instruments have been heard internationally as they embrace opportunities to perform during their travels.
Peter's lifelong music career has taken him from electric blues/rock guitar to graduating from the Milwaukee Conservatory of Music as a "Master of American Fingerstyle Guitar" and he has been performing for nearly 40 years. His grasp of deeply intense solo guitar pieces by artists such as Leo Kottke , Pierre Bensusan, and Michael Hedges, is nothing short of astonishing. His many performances include an international appearance in Japan.
Gloria began her music career after meeting Peter who became both her mentor and teacher. In addition to guitar and percussion, she brings to the duo her main instrument; her voice.
