It was an absolute pleasure to meet Pete Roe and his awesome band at Sacred Trinity in Salford. There were a few hang overs to deal with but that didn’t get in the way of this beautiful performance of ‘Oh Suzanne’.
Pete Roe learnt his trade amongst the cobbled paths of Bristol and old jazz musicians. He soon found himself playing piano for Laura Marling after taking off to London in 2008. Having recently toured with Laura Marling as both part of her band and support act, Pete is now stepping into the limelight himself with ‘The Merry-Go-Round’ released by Communion Records.
Released on 7th June, ‘The Merry-Go-Round’ – recorded completely live and solo – showcases Pete’s tender vocals and storytelling which have seen him compared to Bert Jansch and John Martyn.
