Peter comes from Biggar in Lanarkshire and in his retirement works part time in Peebles at the Visit Scotland Tourist Information Office. When he's not telling people about the joys of the Scottish Border country and where to find the best B&B he's writing song lyrics, doing recordings or taking photographs.
These three hobbies keep him well occupied.
Here you'll find examples of his songs most of which were recorded here at Bryansroom. Peter and Derek Hamilton have collaborated on a number of these.
You can also find examples of his recordings mainly done at accordion clubs such as Biggar and Newtongrange.
Thanks to Peter and his recording gear we have memories of some of the greats of the Scottish Dance Band scene, an album being made of Alex MacArthur (the General) after his untimely passing. Peter has also done some crackers of the late great Jim Johnstone.
Away from the Scottish scene Peter managed to get Kylie Minogue interested in one of his songs.
