Pete Molinari Band Sligo Live Festival Club


Pete Molinari is a folk blues singer/songwriter of Egyptian/Italian/Maltese heritage, raised in Chatham, England where he was discovered by Billy Childish. Playing solo, he became a fixture in his hometown and various London acoustic clubs.

During an 18 month stint in America, he honed his unique vocal style playing the bars and cafes of New York’s Greenwich Village.

Pete Molinari sits at that point where, as Muddy Waters put it, the blues had a baby and they called it rock ‘n’ roll. Here soul, country, blues and rockabilly collide in perfect symbiosis. The songs tell tales of life, love, literature and compact the singer/songwriter’s many decades of musical influences and his globe-spanning, wandering lifestyle.
