Pete has been a professional musician since 1971, playing at festivals concerts, clubs, dances & schools throughout Britain, Europe, Asia, New Zealand & USA. During the ‘70s he toured and recorded with Chris Coe, was a member of the legendary New Victory Band & with Nic Jones, Tony Rose and again, Chris Coe, he was a member of Bandoggs. In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s he toured and recorded with Red Shift but since 1985 he's mainly worked as a soloist & earned an enviable reputation.

His strong, distinctive voice is enhanced by his instrumental versatility, the ringing strings of his bouzouki, the sweet chords of his mountain dulcimer, the plaintive frailing banjo & the pulsing reeds of his melodeon. He's also a country dance caller, creator & b and musician. He sings, plays & step dances, sometimes all at once!

 

“He's an impressive singer, songwriter, and a multi-instrumentalist who switches from bouzouki to melodeon, banjo

and dulcimer, and can handle anything from traditional ballads to comic material.” The Guardian

 

“There’s a very good reason why Pete Coe’s career has been such a long and successful one: this is a man who never rests on his laurels and who is constantly looking for new angles from which to approach his music. In addition he’s an extremely competent singer, musician, arranger, step dancer and a stage performer of rare ability…” Living Tradition

 

“One of the most important folk artists in Britain” MOJO

 

“it may be easier and quicker to list the talents that Pete Coe doesn’t have.” Andy Kershaw, BBC World

 

“Every aspiring young performer needs to watch this man whose driving, footstomping delivery on a variety of instruments and outstanding voice is an object lesson in regard-for-your-audience basics.” Paul Davenport, English Dance & Song magazine
