Since the release of his brilliant debut recording “Fiddlecase” in 1996, Pete has recorded a further five albums, the most recent being “Now & Then”(2006), which features music by Gow, Mackintosh and Skinner along with some of Pete’s own compositions.
A highly talented musician
Pete now lives in Perthshire not far from the birth places of Neil Gow and Robert Mackintosh. The beautiful Perthshire landscape has been the inspiration for many of Pete’s compositions to be found on two great Scottish fiddle CDs – The Birnam Oak and Sycamore.
Pete Clark divides his time between teaching and performing. He is a fiddle tutor on the Scottish Music degree course at the RSAMD (Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama) in Glasgow and teaches a weekly fiddle class at the famous Taybank music pub in Dunkeld.
Pete has been privileged to work with a great diversity of artists. Last year saw him touring with a new trio line up, “Three Men in a Boat”, featuring accordionist Gregor Lowrey and pianist Jamie Jauncey. Recently he has also been working with guitarist Jack Evans and ‘cellist Ron Shaw. Much of his regular playing is for ceilidh dancing with The Benachally Ceilidh Band. He also on occasion plays for the RSCDS (Royal Scotttish Country Dance Society).
Aside from and teaching and performing, Pete directs the Neil Gow Festival which is held in March every year in Dunkeld & Birnam. Pete is available for weddings, corporate events, parties and ceilidhs.
