Lawrence Peters
Lawrence Peters is a country singer, songwriter, drummer and America’s preeminent electric washboard player, with a musical career spanning twenty-plus years. He is best known for his involvement in the watershed Songs: Ohia/ Magnolia Electric Company album, singing lead on the track "The Old Black Hen". He was a key player in the Lawrence, Kansas music scene before moving to Chicago in 1992. Since then, he has recorded and performed with dozens of bands, including The Lawrence Peters Outfit, Songs: OHIA, The Velcro Lewis Group, Plastic Crimewave Sound, The Golden Horse Ranch Band, Eiren Caffall, Mar Caribe, The Harrow, and Tijuana Hercules. Lawrence’s main musical passion is deep-rooted American country music, but he also plays cosmic soul, Shaker-modern, and folk pop, and somehow gets away with it. In his spare time he collects country records, DJs at The Hideout, The Whistler, The Owl, Constellation, and others, and volunteers for CHIRP Radio.
