There is always such delight in hearing and watching a true professional with his masterful stage presence and infinite good humor. Not to be negated is Mr. Peterson's wonderful voice and his expertise as a guitarist. Each song was prefaced with a story, historical or whimsical, delivered in such a way as to capture the hearts and sensibilities of the concert goers. ... Interesting to this reviewer were the glimpses of history and origins of songs. Mr. Peterson made them all so interesting as well as melodic. The artist closed the program with the anthem recognized as the national anthem of Scotland, :The Flower of Scotland." Although he commented that it was not necessary for us to stand during the playing, we were moved to stand in tribute to a beautiful country so well represented by Carl Peterson."

"One man. One guitar. One incredible concert. ... The lone artist had a beautiful voice and a manner that made him instantly likable. ... Sometimes when an artist asks an audience to play a role, the reaction is one of hesitancy. This was not the case Friday. People readily joined in and seemed to take great pleasure, particularly in the singing. Peterson made them feel comfortable. So did the music. At concert's end, he was presented with a standing ovation."
