Peter Albert, is lifelong resident of Maine, he is an accomplished musician with 30+ years experience as a solo guitarist. Peter studied classical guitar with John McLaren and the late Walter Spaulding (University of Maine,) also participated in a master class given by Cuban virtuouso guitarist Rey de la Torre. Eventually, Peter expanded the classical technique he had learned to the steel string acoustic giving him a method of staying creative by writing his own instrumental compositions. “I had heard the British band Pentangle as a teenager and the two guitarists, Bert Jansch & John Renbourn amazed me away with their fusion of medieval/renaissance and blues/jazz/ and traditional folk music”. Other important influences include John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Adrian Legg, Michael Hedges, Kenny Burrell, Pat Martino, Julian Bream, Ravi Shankar. http://www.peteralbertguitar.com/
