BORN AND RAISED NEAR THE ANDROSCOGGIN RIVER IN MAINE, PETER HI-FI WARD traveled to Boston and played guitar alongside Jimmy Rogers, Otis Rush, Johnny Copeland, Sunnyland Slim and Lowell Fulson. He sat in often with Ronnie Earl and for a time worked with Sugar Ray & the Bluetones. Later he toured with Pinetop Perkins, Jerry Portnoy and the rhythm section known as Smith and Jones — Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Calvin "Fuzz" Jones — after Muddy Waters' band left to form the Legendary Blues Band. Here is Peter's long-awaited debut CD full of original blues and swing songs. Hope you like it!

"Killer disk!" WBRS-FM

"Warm, winning stuff from a white boy with the blues that's been slinging his guitar for 40 years as a sideman and now steps out in to the light. ... This is one sweetie of an after-hours set that brings the blues without bringing you down. Contemporary while being traditional, this is a set that'll get you paying attention and not wanting to miss a beat" —  Midwest Record of Chicago. 

 

 

"Wholeheartedly recommended"

"A veritable super session" — Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Weekly, New Jersey.
