Pete Farnham has been writing and performing songs for more than a decade in several local bands before embarking on a solo performing career. His music is a mix of bluegrass, country, country rock and blues, with a bit of humor thrown in. Pete plays guitar and harmonica performing originals and covers. His album, “New Tricks from an Old Dawg,” features twelve tunes, eleven of which are originals covering a wide range of genres. Much of his music features strong Virginia-related themes, especially the history, culture and natural beauty of his new home, Rockbridge County and the beautiful Valley of Virginia.
