Duke Special

looks like a hippie-roamer who performs his songs in pedestrian areas around the world. Indeed a bit of the charm and the honesty of the streets can be heard in the music of the Irish singer/songwriter Peter Wilson. But that’s where comparisons end. His orchestral pop is aimed at the biggest stages of the world. For instance the Royal National Theatre in London, for which he recorded his new album.
