Foggy Mountain Consort
The Foggy Mountain Consort is Bostons premier R&B band that is, Renaissance & Bluegrass. This five-member ensemble fuses the delicate beauty of Renaissance music with the inventiveness and energy of fiddle and banjo-driven roots music, with the honest beauty of traditional folk songs.

Art has been a mainstay bluegrass, country, and swing fiddler in the Boston acoustic music scene for more than 30 years.

Peter is a master of historic plucked strings: the Renaissance lute, the theorbo, and the nineteenth-century guitar.

Uncomfortable in his own time, Peter has been reborn as King of the Bluegrass Theorbo, or so they say.
