In June Peter was awarded one of 15 Archibald Bush Foundation Artist Fellowships.
The amazing Bush Foundation awards artists with funds to "deepen and advance their work and to foster their careers as artists." The grant is the largest artist grant in the Upper Midwest, and one of only three open-application artist fellowships of this size in the United States.
Pete wrote in a recent email: "I am so grateful to the Bush Foundation and the panelists who chose me. I am imagining using the grant to write and record a special collection of songs, but I'm still working out what the theme of that project will be."

Thanks again to the Bush Foundation for this amazing opportunity.
