Weekend Spotlight – Peter and the Wolves

without comments

Peter and the Wolves play infront of Cache Bank and Trust on Saturday, June 16th.

What do you get when you add together string instuments, family ties, and a love of folk music? Well, Peter and the Wolves of course!

This past Saturday, two of the three band members, brothers Peter and Dan Workman, drew a crowd with their captivating harmonies and array of instuments, including a guitar, banjo, and mandolin. While the band was formed just last year in 2011, the Workman brothers were playing together long before that, starting in high school and continuing onward. Now, accompanied by a drummer, the group draws inspiration from groups such as the Fleet Foxes and Arcade Fire, creating a folk sound with a rock kick to it! While the drummer couldn’t be with us Saturday, the brothers talked about the enjoyment of “busking” on the street, relating it back to their music roots and the tradition of folk being played for the people.  Both know how to play the instuments they had in tow, and would often switch with each other, even from song to song. Warm and inviting, this group is one you don’t want to miss!

If you didn’t make it out this weekend, be sure to check back in July, when Peter and the Wolves joins us again!
