Peter Blanchette: Renaissance of the Arch Guitar

Rachel Anne Goodman interviews classical musician and composer, Peter Blanchette. Peter plays one of only four arch guitars in the world, an instrument he invented, which is a combination of classical guitar and lute. Blanchette is one of the world’s experts on the instrument, having played his brand of Renaissance and Baroque music in concert halls and street corners throughout Europe and the United States. Peter shares his music, perspective on what it takes to survive as a musician, and his transition from factory worker to street musician, to film scorer and winning Prairie Home Companion’s Towns under 2000 competition.
