Pete Vigour Musician and Music Teacher

I am a performer and teacher of traditional acoustic folk music in the Charlottesville, Virginia area.

I teach fiddle, banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and play in longstanding local band Uncle Henry’s Favorites; also the Albemarle Ramblers and the Sugar Hollow Trio; and work with the Charlottesville Friends of Old-Time Music (CFOOT) to bring traditional acoustic music to a wider audience.

If you live in Central Virginia and would like to learn to play acoustic music, you're in luck— our area is chock full of good musicians, bands, venues to hear good music, places to jam, great music stores, opportunities to learn and share tunes, festivals, and historical events and reenactments.

Contact me today if you'd like to learn some music or if you have a question about traditional music in our area.
