What is it that makes Leek such a great place to nurture live music?
Maybe it’s something in the Moorlands air!

A much delayed live musical double is about to happen -
The first of a new series of ‘Folk Fiasco Concerts’, was planned by Peace through Folk in 2020 to coincide with the launch of
Pete Morton’s  
latest album -  ‘A Golden Thread’ .

That in-venue concert, postponed due to covid,  will now take place in a
Live by Zoom Concert on
Wednesday 20th January .

Pete Morton is a much-loved favourite troubadour with a wealth of great songs, a remarkable singing voice and a rapid fire sense of humour which tempers his vivid social commentary, sense of social justice and humanity.

He has amassed an impressive catalogue of 16 albums produced during his career which began back to 1987. His musical travels have included concerts, festivals, and Folk Operas in all parts of the UK, Europe, North America, Australasia, Hong Kong, Oman, Israel/Palestine, Pakistan, Malaysia and Singapore

Although based in London Pete frequently returns to play gigs in Staffordshire. During one such visit in 2019 he struck up an exciting new partnership with Paul Yarrow of Field Street Studios, Leek.

The outcome is
‘A Golden Thread’ an album of musical magic from Pete Morton, created here in the Staffordshire Moorlands.
The launch concert on 20th January will also be supported by guest singers
Rick Ford, Mike Gledhill, Phoebe Rees, and Helen Walford
- each presenting a quite different form of musical excellence.
 This will be a ‘Folk Fiasco Concert’ hosted by Peace through Folk

and The Leek Peace Choir
