In 2009, after several years out of the public eye, Peter Green is back with a new band – Peter Green and Friends. Now seated centre stage, what is obvious is that the show revolves around him, and that he is in the company of notably simpatico musicians. Peter’s guitar and voice is shining once again.

Peter Green and Friends is about the man himself enjoying the performance experience – this is not a Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac greatest hits band. Naturally, no Peter Green appearance would be complete without a few of his classic compositions, but now the focus is on fresh renditions of Peter's personal blues, R&B and soul favourites. The repertoire is an exciting, unpredictable mix and you can't help but notice him smiling and laughing in a way not seen for a very long time.

Band leader, Mike Dodd has brought together a cracking group of musicians: keyboard ace Geraint Watkins (Van Morrrison, Nick Lowe, Bill Wyman), the cool stand-up bass of Matt Radford (Peter Molinari, Nick Lowe) and the blues-driven grooves of drummer and Andalucian resident Andrew Flude, plus the chunky rhythm guitar of Mike Dodd. All are there, first and foremost, to provide keen support to the great man himself.?
