We first saw Pete Grant years ago on stage with Dervish. Imagine our surprise when he walked into the Latitudes Sunday night session and whipped out a 10 string dobro, what a wonderful soulful sound.

Pete and Phyllis (flute) Grant are regulars at Latitudes and occasionally the In Harmony’s Way Up In Auburn song circle.

Pete’s first performance at the Auburn House Concerts was with Paddy Keenan & Tommy O’Sullivan in 2008. Pete normally tours with Paddy on the west coast and has done some recording with Tommy.

Pete next accompanied Gerry O’Beirne, a night of guitars.

Pete did a set to open the Megan McLaughlin concert, April 2011. Later Pete joined Megan on stage for a few tunes, it was magical.

Pete used to play with the bluegrass band The Dillards. He was with the band when they asked a then unknown autoharp artist to open their show.  Years later Pete reconnected with Bryan Bowers for a couple of tunes at Bryan’s Auburn House Concert in May 2009 and 2011.
