Third in the Burg with Peter Stone

The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is pleased to welcome folk musician Peter Stone to Harrisburg for this month’s Third in the Burg! This event is free and open to the public.


Born out of the peculiar NorthEast-meets-Midwest-meets-South blend that is Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Peter Stone has cultivated a unique take on guitar-centric folk music. His intimate, autobiographical songwriting lends itself to a feeling of closeness, drawing in listeners to witness his distinct perspective. He has lived in apartments, vans, tents, hostels, from Boston to Oregon to Los Angeles, picking up a layer of road dust which coats his reflective, balanced take on the American songwriting tradition. His previous band’s musical output has generated over a million streams online, and he has been found sharing the stage with the likes of Guster, Dr. John, Dirty Heads, AJR, and Yoke Lore. He continues to craft emotive, thought provoking songs dealing with war, peace, voyages, love, and loss. He recently returned to central Pennsylvania to write what will become his debut solo album.
