With a steady flow of powerful, uplifting energy across the age gap, Pete’s Posse taps into many traditions north to south and east to west, to distill a distinct sound that is completely their own. Since 2014 they have racked up more than 80,000 miles of touring, released 4 albums, and played such festivals as New Bedford Folk Festival, Festival Memoire et Racine, and Old Songs Folk Festival.
Opening is Boston-based fiddler and folksinger Emerald Rae! Emerald Rae creates a groove-heavy sound reminiscent of old country blended with the intricacy of Celtic fiddle and rocked-up droning accompaniment. Complimented by sultry vocals and introspective lyrics that mirror old folktales, Emerald Rae brings the fiddling-singing combo to a whole new plateau.
