Minneapolis, MN
Born in Minneapolis in 1948, Peter Lang
began playing the guitar during the folk boom of the late 1950's.
Although influenced initially by the blues,
and later by the playing of guitarist such as John Fahey,
Peter's playing has always been marked not only by a
strong sense of the tradition of the style but also
by a willingness to experiment with new ideas.

Peter Lang was discovered and recorded in 1972 by
the legendary guitarist John Fahey who signed Lang
to his own label, Takoma Records. Fahey launched
the careers of other notable artists on Takoma,
including Leo Kottke, George Winston, Robbie Basho,
Bola Sete and others.

Peter Lang toured, recorded
and performed for nearly ten years, developing a
reputation as one of the nations top acoustic players.
In the 70’s he was in good company, having recorded
or performed with Ry Cooder, John Fahey, Jerry Garcia,
Chet Atkins, John Hartford, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band,
Emmylou Harris, Leo Kottke, Freddie King,
The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, John Hammond,
Keith Jarrett, Phoebe Snow, Maria Muldaur,
The Yellowjackets, Robben Ford, and many others
