Pete Keating is a life-long multi instrumentalist writing and performing all original material. He has performed extensively in the Pacific Northwest as a solo musician and in several groups including The Dandelion Greens, Wild Man Cooley, The Dandelion Family String Band, Juke Joint, Blue Hole Iquanas, and The Renslow Trestle.
Having spent most of his life in beautiful Washington State, he has been lucky to have bonded with others sharing the same passions for sound, rhythm and the skill of original song writing. Each of his musical partners has helped bring a unique aesthetic to his music and having been blessed to perform with various individuals and groups over the years, he has grown comfortable jumping genres and mashing up influences.
Always in the pursuit of new writing and opportunities for performing, Pete is currently focusing on solo performances in addition to his latest assembly of musicians known as The Renslow Trestle.
Current performances will prominently feature new material but will also dive into favorites from his previous releases. Check out the performances page for updates on upcoming shows near you.
