Throughout his career, British guitarist Adrian Legg
has earned the highest praise from the media.
magazine describes Adrian Legg as “impossible to categorize as a player.”
Renowned and awarded for his unique style of fingerpicking on electric guitar and the way he blends diverse musical styles and inspirations into a distinctive sound all his own, Legg has been hailed as “one of the wizards” of the guitar (Philadelphia Inquirer), “an adventurer” (Newsday) and “a genius” (Los Angeles Reader)
. In addition to his distinguished career as a live performer, recording artist, and composer, he is an innovator in guitar design and amplification technology, an instructor, photographer, writer, and author, witty and engaging between-song onstage raconteur, and an at-large commentator for National Public Radio’s All Things Considered
. It’s no wonder that What’s Up
magazine hails London-born Legg as “the greatest British import since Newcastle Brown Ale.”
For Legg, the fulcrum and essence of his creativity is in live performance. 'Playing live is the whole point,' he stresses. 'Everyone makes a journey, an effort; we all come together — me, the audience, the people who run the venue — to share this wonderful, universal, human emotional interaction. This is where music lives.'"

writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey, about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of "folk" and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. He studied Theology and music in college, and then spent two years in seminary. After deciding that the priesthood wasn't for him, he took a part-time job as a church music director for 8 years, while performing at clubs and colleges and writing and recording his music. In 1995, he quit his job and started touring full-time. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has 9 CDs to his credit, and has sold over 70 thousand of them independently.
