Folk singer Pete Morton will be touring Palestine between 12th and 15th August 2008. He will perform at concerts in Ramallah, Bethlehem, and East Jerusalem plus other cities to be announced.

Pete is a songwriter and performer from Nottingham, England with a wealth of great songs and stage presence. He has been an active advocate of a peaceful and just resolution to the conflict in Palestine/Israel through his music, and his latest CD, Napoleon Jukebox, features his famous peace song, "The Two Brothers". Pete's show is dynamic and intense as well as approachable and fun loving. He seriously believes there are 'Six billion eccentrics' in the world and that particular song is fast becoming a signature tune for people everywhere.

Starting out as a busker on the streets of Europe he has entertained all over the globe with his unique and involving style of songwriting and traditional singing. Pete sings from the heart, delivering songs that tell compelling stories and speak of the human condition from a very unique perspective. With a passionate, strong voice and strident guitar style, traditional songs often rub shoulders with Pete's current writing with remarkable ease. His songs are an unruly mix of humour, politics, love and social comment, wrapping their way around the folk tradition.

Pete has recorded five solo albums of original material and a project album of traditional songs entitled 'Trespass'. His CD 'Hunting the heart' was a mojo folk album of the year in 2000. His more recent releases, 'Swarthmoor' and 'Flying an Unknown Flag' have received rave reviews.
