What do you get when you take a two-part harmony, a mandolin, a banjo, a guitar and some drums? The folk-rock band, Peter and the Wolves, that’s what! The local Fort Collins band graced the streets of Old Town this Sunday with their acoustic set in their first show of this Streetmosphere season.
Doing a mix of covers and originals, the group entertained onlookers with their smooth sounds. People sat in the shade provided by the trees of Mountain Avenue to avoid the heat and listen to the soothing music. With a mesmerizing folksy twang, Peter and the Wolves drew people in, causing them to stop and watch the trio. One person even made it a point to stop at tell us how much she enjoyed the performance, stating that the group was “definitely a great choice” for the event.
Peter and the Wolves was just one of the talented acts that performed on the music filled Sunday. Other performances included Crosson-Sloniker Consort, Matt Smiley Jazz Band and Curious Gage. In addition to the many musical acts, the artists of Art on Mountain Gallery wowed pedestrians with their various painting styles.
