An outstanding performer with exceptional audience rapport. Pete Morton travels with a guitarcase full of great songs. Full of verve and conviction, he presents himself as a live performer who effortlessly handles, through his songs, every situation. His stories and songs speak from the heart. Pete has introduced into folk music the art of Frapping, where he takes a popular folk song and constructs new verses (rapping) but still keeps the chorus for all to sing. He has released many albums and is one of the finest performers on the folk scene.
