Dead Of Winter '09: Pat Corrigan, Scott Peterson

In this installment of our Dead Of Winter interviews, you get two interviews plus two MP3's from last year's show. The first MP3 is from Jay Lobley of Metal Feathers (he's gotten some love in this interview series already) covering Neil Young: Jay Lobley - "After The Goldrush"

Pat Corrigan is well-known around Portland as an artist (his Bollard comics are a monthly must-read!) and musician who has been involved in a number of popular local groups. Read on for another MP3 and interview, after Pat's.

Before we move on to the next interview, here's another MP3 from Dead Of Winter '08:
Jeremy Alexander (of An Evening With) covering Ray Lamontagne.




Scott Peterson is a musician who we don't get to see playing shows very often, so this Saturday is sure to be a treat.

How long have you lived in Maine?
My whole life, brother.

When did you start playing music?
Started writing songs about 10 years ago, on piano.

Who do you perform with normally?
I play usually in living rooms or on boats, or in the woods, with Moses Atwood and other friendly folk.

Other than SPACE, what is one of your favorite venues in Portland?
The streets, and the green pastures of the eastern prominade.

Who is your favorite Portland musician or group, other than yourself or those you perform with?
My favorite Portland-area musicians are Chriss, Caleb, Colleen, Tom, and Micah - the infamous Fire on Fire team.

How are you tackling the challenge of performing this material alone, when you usually perform it with others?
I haven't performed really at all in the last year, so performing at all will be fun. But I got a new guitar in california - a flamenco with a pickup, so that'll be a kick.

What are your musical plans for 2009?
2009 musical plans are to record a new album with Moses on dobro and Greg Donahue, on the upright.
