Jake Peters


The small town of Didsbury, Alberta is home to Jake Peters. As an accomplished, award-winning guitar and banjo-picker, anything with strings is fair game to Jake. His latest additions to his stringed instrument arsenal includes the oud, sas, dombra and barabat - all hailing from the Middle East. He is an amazing teacher, an inspiring mentor, a singer song-writer, an incredible musician and a gifted luthier. He can make music with almost anything placed in his hands.

Jake’s finesse not only lies with his creative ability – styles include bluegrass, blues, Celtic, classical, folk, gospel, and Spanish – but also displays his talents as a fine, meticulous luthier. Although his main focus is on designing and building guitars, banjos and mandolins, his repair work is also well-sought after, with many people bringing their vintage instruments in for the careful attention he gives to restoring each piece to original detail.

His ability as a musician is a delight to watch, hear and feel, especially the spontaneous interaction that evolves when he works with other musicians. His show includes multiple styles of music including: gospel, blue grass, blues, country, Spanish, Hawaiian, jazz, classical and world rhythms. He is a “musician's musician”. A well-known name among professional musicians both sides of the border, he has worked with such artists as Cindy Church, Dick Damron, Eli Barsi, Ben Crane, Pam Tillis, Lisa Brokop, Randy Travis, Randy Bachman and Dennis Agajanian.
