When Pete Denahy talks about his his own show, he says, “It not rocket science; I’m not the best singer, fiddle player or guitar picker in the world, but as far as I know, no one else is doing my show.”
Which is true; there isn’t another show like it. He takes you an a journey that travels from the gold rush days of the mid 19h century to buying toilet paper at your local supermarket. It’s perhaps not a show formula many managers would suggest their acts follow, but it seems to work for Pete.
He blends fiddle tunes, bluegrass style original songs and madcap comedy to provide the audience with an escape from reality most of them feel is worth their while.
Pete cut his teeth with the Ploughboys in Melbourne in the mid 90’s and went on to tour as fiddle player and comic with Slim Dusty, Sara Storer and Troy Cassar Daley in the early 2000’s before focusing on his solo career.
