Singer, songwriter and guitarist Pete Abbott, front man for the band Other Roads, has teamed up with fellow band member Gregor Borland for a 3-week tour next March and we are delighted to have secured one of the much sought-after dates.
Pete’s career started when he and Ken Nicol became friends and did several performances together. Later, he was invited to join the band of John Wright, along with Gregor Borland. When John died in 2008, Pete and Gregor decided to honour the band’s commitments by performing tribute concerts to their lost friend. Joined by Dave Walmisley they embarked on a year of concerts under the name of John Wright’s Band with Pete leading. The astounding success of these concerts and the requests for return appearances meant continuing to tour was assured, and ‘Other Roads’ was born.
Pete’s own reputation as a singer, songwriter and performer has grown with the band and several of his songs are now performed by other well-known artistes including Anthony-John Clarke, Flossie Malavialle and Bram Taylor.
Our support artist this evening will be singer/songwriter Stuart Marson, best known for the songs Close to the Wind (as sung by Fairport Convention) and Over the Lancashire Hills.
