GUEST,Hootenanny Obit: Pete Stanley R.I.P. (1940-2020) (41) RE: Obit: Pete Stanley R.I.P. (1940-2020) 17 Jan 20


Just looked at the short obituary above. The heading "American Banjo Player" is wrong for starters.

There are several other people that teamed up with Pete over the years. American - Texan I think, Clay Jackson for one (as the Tennessee two), Donnie Scott for another when they appeared at the Lone Star in London. There are more.

He was a regular at the Ballads & Blues Association club in London in the early sixties.

I think there is still a video clip on You Tube of Pete playing the US national anthem to open the Galax Fiddlers Convention some years back.

In the nineties he often appeared at the long running picking sessions at The Hemingford Arms in the Barnsbury area of North London.

I also have a flyer from the sixties for "The Haverstock Hillbillies"; Pete Stanley, Martin Carthy & Redd Sullivan. " For Your Sunday Afternoon Entertainment.

Does this help?
