About the Artists.

Peter Vadiveloo

Peter weaves blues, roots, funk and folk music around a rich seam of contemporary issues including social justice and the environment. He is a terrific performer, loves interacting with an audience, has a huge voice, is a master percussionist, and a fine guitarist. Peter’s deft use of a looper pedal creates a full and layered musical experience.
