Once again, I’ll be leading The Beatles Singalong at the Wisconsin State Fair! New location this year – Slim McGinn’s north stage, Grandstand Ave at 2nd Street. Two shows daily: Aug 5-14, 4pm and 5:30pm (Aug 15, 1pm and 2:30pm)
After a long break, I’m doing a couple of summer shows, including The Wisconsin State Fair. Will be available for gigs in Fall 2021.
Hey, check this out! I’m featured on several podcasts. My song “The Colors I See” is the opening/closing theme for a new weekly podcast, The Log. Also, a version of my song “Money Gotta Go” is the theme for Charles Bursell Presents. I also perform incidental music for each episode (and even act as an occasional sidekick). I also created an original theme and accompany the improv comedy show Stream of Consciousness Talk Radio Theatre, and my song “Julianne” serves as the theme for the podcast Conversations. They’re all pretty cool. Links for all shows are below and can be found at: charlesbursell.com.
Peter’s albums are available on iTunes.
“The Colors I See”: Eight original songs, including The Biggest Lie of All, Green Green Bay (an ode to the Green Bay Packers), and the title track The Colors I See. Plus three surprising covers.
“Small Town Christmas”: Peter’s unique take on Holiday classics plus three original songs for the season, Wisconsin White, An Agnostic Christmas, and the title track, Small Town Christmas.

We’re off for the duration. But when we return… Peter performs every Saturday night at Cornerstone Restaurant in Genesee Depot. Owner Judy Knoernschild has created a beautiful bistro with an amazing variety of fabulous food, an extensive wine list, homemade desserts, and great service in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Judy, her staff, and her clientele are always friendly and fun to be around. Peter provides his acoustic-eclectic brand of classic pop, Americana, and jazz standards from 6-9pm. Hope to see you there. Be sure to say hello. Visit: www.cornerstonegeneseedepot.com
Milwaukee’s East Side is the coolest — come on out and see the TRIO’s first Milwaukee appearance! Along with Mike Helgesen on percussion and Bill Lambrecht on bass, we’ve got some great music for you, including songs from the new CD. We’ll start up about 9pm. Y-Not III is at 1854 East Kenilworth Place, right down the street from Beans and Barley and right around the corner from The Oriental. See ya!
Next time we open up the songbook and take your requests for an eclectic mix of original tunes, classic pop, folk, and great American standards.

Thanks so much to Dave and all the folks at Traders for hosting our shows twice a month.
A special evening dedicated to the great American music I first discovered in my mom’s piano bench. You’ll hear my own acoustic take on classics from the 30’s-50’s (give or take a decade) by George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Burt Bacharach… Songs made famous by the likes of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole… I love singing these songs, I hope you’ll stop by: Milwaukee Street Traders, 523 Milwaukee Street, Delafield, WI. 6pm-8pm.
