I think McGrath of Harlow is talking sense.Pete is a fine writer and performer, but there is not much about him to excite the writers of newspapers. Plenty of other excellent writers and performers produced excellent work without ever getting much recognition. Bert Jansch and Ewan MacColl spring to mind. There have actually been threads among Mudcaters to find out who they were.Pete is likely to carry on producing fine songs and fine performances without ever gaining recognition outside the circles in which he works. I hope I'm wrong and that he does strike lucky. Still, if he doesn't, the rest of us will still have the good fortune to see him working in small, intimate spaces, where his warmth and physical presence is most effective.
