Considered a "gifted acoustic fingerstyle guitar player" (Dirty Linen), Peter Janson's Celtic finger-style guitar music brings world-class solo guitar playing to records and the concert stage. A Long Road - tunes from Celtic lands, is his sixth domestic solo recording, and brings traditional folk music from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and North America with arrangements for solo guitar which, while following the original melodies, depart from their traditional presentation as airs, jigs, and reels, offering complimentary interpretations of the original tunes. Peter states, "I have placed my emphasis on interpretation as opposed to strict tradition and played these as honestly and joyously as I could!"
This audiophile quality recording was recorded and mastered in Nashville Tennessee.
Peter Janson has collaborated on stage with a variety of acoustic artists including "American Guitar Masters" tours with Larry Pattis, "Artistry of the Guitar" tours with Ken Bonfield and Steve Davison, "String Songs" concerts with luminaries Tim Farrell and Michael Manring, "Friends" concerts with Steve Hunt, Henrik Bridger and Bertram Lehmann, and has shared stages with Ed Gerhard, Alex DeGrassi, Dakota Dave Hull, Chris Proctor, Jamie Bonk, singer-songwriters Brooks Williams, Shane Jackman, Greg Greenway, and Tim Harrison, Ugandan artist Kinobe and Celtic artists Aine Minogue, Aoife Clancy, Robbie O'Connell, and others.
With critical acclaim such as "perfection... highly creative," "a true artist's soul," and "perhaps the leading contemporary fingerstyle guitarist today" there's no doubt he has bridged a gap bringing together the every-day music fan with die-hard guitar fans. Peter's music has entertained millions throughout the world on radio, digital radio, internet radio, TV, on airline flights, and live. He is a regular performer at guitar festivals and concerts throughout North America. His solo recordings include Firelight Moonlight, Winter Gifts, Across the Bridge, Sometimes From Here, Compass Rose, and A Long Road - tunes from Celtic Lands.
