I would like to contact PETER WELDON, banjo player who
has been on many recordings, including Ed McCurdy and
McGarrigle's albums.
Any information, links, e-mail, phone etc. greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Thomas.

are you sure you do not mean john f weldon?
he is a mudcat member, although the drop-down links that
contain member info do not seem to be operational today.

i posted a video that he did for the Canadian film board,and
he has animated a song by the mcgarrigles, and there is often
banjo music in his videos....so perhaps that is the guy you
are looking for?

Hi Open mike,
There are a number of posts on mudcat which refer to PETER WELDON,
the most recent in 2010 posted by John F., announcing a group named
WHAT FOUR, described as "a bunch of legendary Montreal folkies.." which included PETER.
I've PM'd John F, but no reply so far.
A search indicates his participation in a number of recordings,
as mentioned many McGarrigle sessions, also The Clarkes, The Rosemarys, Derek Lamb & Jean Carignan, etc.
No website found, nor any background information.
Anyone with information, please help. THANKS!
Best wishes, Thomas.

There is indeed a skilled musician named Peter Weldon who has played on both Ed McCurdy and McGarrigle albums. He was a member of the Mountain City Four with the McGarrigles and Jack Nissenson.

He is listed as having appeared as part of the What Four and Friends in April of this year for a scholarship benefit for the Kate McGarrigle scholarship.

Try contacting him via the email address for Jane McGarrigle, or the What Four Youtube and Facebook links shown at the link.

There is also a telephone number for Jane on the poster to which I linked. She'll know.

Peter is, I believe, a cousin of John's. You can PM or email John at johnfelix(at)weldonalley.ca.
