Dan Walker
 

Dan Walker's new album 'Both Sides of the Sea' is a sunny collection of beachside jams and acoustic island-pop ready to be dished out to a summer lovin’ crowd. From Madbury, NH, Dan has supported many national acts including Martin Sexton, Ryan Montbleau and Roseanne Cash. His band of Seacoast favorites perform all over New England at many private events, festivals and venues. 

Dan is one of those musicians that takes his craft seriously. Alway looking for perfection his guitar and voice come together to make the sweetest sounds. Listening to Dan lately I heard him perform Israel Kamakawiwoʻole  (IZ) ' version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by request at a celebration of life and he brought me to tears with his soulful rendition. If you have never heard him play, come to the market for a treat.

                    Pete Peterson

  

Cleveland Peterson III (aka) Pete Peterson, was born and raised in Florida. As a child and young teen, he was heavily influenced musically with a steady dose of southern gospel and rhythm and blues music. He learned to play guitar at the age of sixteen, later learned to play Bass and keyboard. He formed his own band and traveled throughout Florida. He attended the University of South Florida where he had an engineering scholarship but left school to pursue his passion for playing and performing. His journey eventually landed him in Portsmouth, NH where he met his soon to be wife.  While raising a family he  put his musical career on hold, while working full time and playing weekend gigs. As the years passed he performed throughout New England with a host of local bands. His passion grew stronger and he became a composer, arranger and vocalist. He is presently performing with his band " Rhythm Method " alongside his oldest daughter. The band has performed at Venues ranging from " Sugar Loaf USA " to the " Bay City Blues Cafe" in Memphis and has been ranked by New Hampshire Magazine as New Hampshire's best Blues band. He started the dynamic duo " FamilyAffair " with his daughter Yamica and continues to light up the stages all over New England.
