Absolutely fantastic. I expected nothing less from Peter Schwimmer. Where can I buy the CD? JJ

that's an Awesome tune.  I see why your stuff is in the Hot Licks for Banjo book....cause you got a lot of them.  I especially like your drive and bouce.

You're as hot as ever Peter! I always loved when you played Craig Smith's version of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" in Bm....maybe you could record that for me huh??!!! :)

Take care buddy!

P.S. I think we have a mutual friend in Jay Scheevel

That's great, Peter!! I got to know Bill Keith in the mid-70's, and during a conversation I mentioned to him that I was learning some of Carl Jackson's compositions and arrangements, whereupon Bill said, "If you like Carl Jackson you should listen to Peter Schwimmer." Unfortunately, I've never had the opportunity to hear your music until now, but I know now that Bill was so right in speaking highly of you.

Superb, Peter!  You have long been one of my heroes!  I hope to get to pick with you someday.

I saw the song title in the jukebox and I thought it was priceless -- very witty -- and deserved a listen.  Turns out, it was a really good song too! 

Visitng you homepage, I now realize that I too have read about you in the Hot Licks for Bluegrass Banjo book.  I'm glad I finally got to hear some of your playing.  What label do you record on?

Of course we are not allowed to use such words like "Tom"
