Pete Rimmer

Pete Rimmer

Style of performance:

Singer / Guitarist

Repertoire:

Based upon my recent album, "Donovan Songs" - a whole CD of songs written by Donovan.

Recordings:

"Donovan Songs" features 13 songs written by Donovan - everything from a couple of the big hits he had in the 60s such as Mellow Yellow and Catch the Wind to lesser known songs such as The Ferryman Daughter, Sand and Foam, Voyage to the Moon and plenty of others from his various albums.

The songs are played in a gentle Donovan style on guitars, bass, fiddle, viola, whistles, mandolins and recorders.

Pete has a quite a few recordings available and performs on CDs with Bill Hackney, Gallimaufry, and the Jill Fielding Band and others.

Along with Sarah Marks and Roger Gardiner, Gallimaufry is a trio who perform all over the North West, and their album is "Kid on the Mountain".
