Pete Aves ( Steel Guitar/ Acoustic Guitar)

Pete Aves has deep roots in country music. He taught himself pedal steel guitar as a teenager and shortly afterwards went on to play with Medicine Bow, one of the most renowned country bands the UK has ever produced. He toured the USA and appeared at the Wembley Arena International festival with the Bow before moving on to a successful career as a critically acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter. He played guitar in the 1999 musical Stand By Your Man and went on to work with legendary country maverick Lee Hazlewood among others. He has contributed steel guitar to live and recorded work by figures as diverse as Nick Lowe and Richard Youngs and was recently recruited to play guitar with UK folk legends the Strawbs at Cecil Sharp House. Pete is delighted to be reunited with his former Medicine Bow bandmate Pete Orgill and to be playing the music of one of country music’s greatest writers and performers, Dolly Parton.

Pete Orgill (Fiddle, Banjo, Mandolin)

Pete was in one of the first ever country bands (Clinch Mountain Boys) in the U.K. back in the 60s playing the US air bases in Germany backing Barbara Mandrell & toured with Merle Kilgore (best known for writing Ring of Fire along with June Carter - Johnny Cash's wife. Pete was also in a rock band called Asgard on the Moody Blues Threshold record label in the 70's. Joining the Pheasant Pluckers, one of the first bluegrass bands in the UK in the mid 70s they went on to win "ITV Pub Entertainer of the Year" in 1974.  Pete now plays with Johnny Butten (ex Hayseed Dixie banjo player in the Guinness book of records as worlds fastest banjo player!) and Kit Morgan (Vanessa May's / Jethro Tull's guitarist) when not accompanying Diamond Dolly.
