Thread Name: Looking for Peter Astley
Subject: RE: Looking for Peter Astley
Up until last year Pete was living in Leicester and had been there at least since the late 1990s.
Last year he was running a session at a pub called the Pump and Tap on Braunston Gate in the city on a Tuesday night. It might still be going but the venue could have changed by now to one of the other pubs on that road for all I know.
Still playing mandolin and definitely the best accompaniest I've ever come across. He always added something to your songs/tunes but never took them over - and a thoroughly nice guy.
