Pete’s Posse to Perform on Sept. 9

GREENSBORO – Pete Sutherland and Oliver Scanlon, who comprise the Pete’s Posse duo, will perform at the Highland Center for the Arts on Sunday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m.

Pete Sutherland and his protege Oliver Scanlon met up when Scanlon a fourth-grader and they bonded over fiddle music. Several years later, they began to play out, later joining forces with guitarist Tristan Henderson to form Pete’s Posse. The Posse spent the first eight months of the pandemic recording a double album of new music before Henderson left to be with his family in Quebec.

With the trio in hibernation, Sutherland and Scanlon and Oliver have revived their duo act, featuring a wide variety of instrumental combinations and all the musical styles while adding new repertoire to the mix.
