GUEST,Pete Peterson Orpheus Supertones in England 2007 (26) Orpheus Supertones in England 2007 17 Nov 06


The Orpheus Supertones (Walt Koken, Clare Milliner, Kellie Allen and Pete Peterson) are one of the "headliners" at Gainsborough February 16-17 2007 and are looking for gigs, like Spencer the Rover, in "Great Britain and most parts of Wales." After Gainsborough we are touring jointly with Debby McClatchy as "Gathering II." We play traditional American music with fiddles, banjos and guitars learned from people like Charlie Poole, the Skillet Lickers, the Carter Family and fiddlers caught by the Library of Congress.

    Gigs so far are not coming in-- we are told third hand that anti-American sentiment in Britain is hurting American acts such as ours. Since we didn't vote for the guy (or for Republican candidates in either the House or Senate) we feel a little frustrated. Is this true, and has anybody else experienced this?
