PETE COOPER
 
After years of performing, travelling and playing in too many late-night sessions, Pete brings a relaxed, good-humoured approach to his workshops and concerts alike. He also sings, backing himself on fiddle, and plays the mandolin. Pete's unusual fluency in different styles - English, Irish, Scottish, Old Time, Swedish, Eastern European - has been described as ‘chameleon-like’.

A firm believer in lifelong learning, he travels all over the country to teach and perform.

Pete plays, teaches, composes, records and writes about fiddle music. He is best known for his tutorial book/CD The Complete Irish Fiddle Player (1995), published in the USA by Mel Bay, and his more recent collections issued by Schott: Irish Fiddle Solos (2004), English Fiddle Tunes (2006), Eastern European Fiddle Tunes (2007) and American Old Time Fiddle Tunes (2010).
 
Pete Cooper has run regular fiddle courses in London since the mid-1980s, bringing his group classes under one roof in 2001 as the ‘London Fiddle School’,
 
Apart from his great work with Rattle On The Stovepipe and the London Fiddle School, Pete is currently doing a nation-wide tour with Shirley Collins..
