Pete Pawsey Delivers


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Music starts at 7, no cover!

"A thirty-year entanglement with songwriting began innocently enough with an appreciation of the classics of the 60s and 70s, then expanded to include some of the less-traveled. A devotee of Tom Waits and Randy Newman amongst many others, Pete explores the - sometimes fractious - defining moments of human interaction with humour and honesty. A near-obsession with Blues, Gospel and Southern roots music led to regular trips to the SouthEast, and eventually to relocation to North Carolina in 2005. Deeply immersed in the music of the Piedmont, Pete has served both the NC Songwriters’ Co-op, and Carrboro’s WCOM FM Radio station, and as director of Hillsborough, NC’s Lilac Lounge musical gathering. Pete hosts the longest-running all-originals open-mic in the Triangle at Chapel Hill’s historic Cave, as well as fronting blues-soul ensemble Radar’s Clowns of Sedation, and ska octet The Spectacles."
