Munich guitarist, harp player and singer Peter Crow C. has dedicated his entire life, body and soul to
the black American music of the 1920s-1940s period. Specialising in the different Blues styles of this
period – from delta Blues all the way to early urban Blues – he is just as much at home with other
closely related styles like ragtime and jug music.
Peter Crow C. enjoys an excellent reputation within the international Blues scene, thanks to his
consistent style, the perfectionist attitude he applies to his musical technique and the vast
experience he garnered through performing hundreds of live shows around the world. A skilful guitar
player, Peter Crow C. expresses himself through authentic, no-frills vocals and does not limit himself
to perpetuating traditional material. His refreshingly resourceful interpretations of the old styles
allow him to go one step further and lay bare to his audience the underlying beauty of the Blues:
groove and emotion.
Very well-respected by other artists in his circle, he has shared the applause on stage with renowned
artists like Paul Orta, Steve James, Paul Geremia and Jim Kweskin, and received the Public Choice
Award at the Dresden Blues Festival 2001 (Germany). In 2004, his cooperation with the band The
Crazy Hambones earned him 2nd prize at the The German Record Critics‘ Award, and in 2005 he was
awarded the Blues Poll for best German Blues album (Cool Step).
He was also awarded the prestigious Deutscher Schallplattenpreis 3/05 award for his solo album
Greedy Woman Blues.
