BIO : Peter Bayreuther, born 12.2.1955 in Minden/Westfalia in the West/North of Germany.
His second name stems from his ancestors, who emigrated 300 years ago from the town Bayreuth in the South of Germany, known for it's Bayreuther Festspiele, the festival of Richard Wagner's music.
When Little Peter learned of German history, he decided to take the worldwide known German composers as role models rather than the notorious war lords…

They appeared at TV and radio, toured all over Germany and down to Chicago, Bangkok and Liverpool, where Peter initiated at the Cavern Club in 2001 the European innovative music festival Lovegeist.
