Pete Lanctot


Pete Lanctot is a composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist living in Brooklyn, New York. Performing on violin, viola, guitar, accordion and as a singer, Pete frequently appears both on the classical stage and in clubs, bars and coffeehouses. His music has been described as “mesmerizing and raw,” living in between genres and combining disparate traditions of folk and blues, improvisational, classical and avant-garde music in an attempt to create at once old and new.
