An award winning singer-songwriter, flat picker, and cutting-edge musician’s musician, Pete Kartsounes is no stranger to life out on the road. He has spent over two decades bringing his voice and guitar to stages all over the world. After 19 years submerged in the Colorado bluegrass scene sharing the stage with bands such as Leftover Salmon, Greensky Bluegrass and Yonder Mountain String Band, Pete now resides in Bend, OR spending most of his days writing, teaching guitar, song schools, doing videography, and touring as a solo act and performing with a few other acts. Pete continues to push the boundaries of the eclectic world of acoustic music. Pete is a truly limitless artist and a craftsman, whose songwriting draws from a myriad of musical traditions. Writing ballads, blues, jazz, bluegrass, folk, and compositions that defy definition, he is best described as a story teller, weaving a tale through a soulful musical journey. Referred to as a "must see", "truly one of a kind", and "as original as he is diverse" from critics, he is rapidly becoming one of the renowned songwriters of today

                     "The songs of Pete Kartsounes rival the caliber of the great songwriters of our time

                                                       and are prolific beyond description."
