Big Pete

Blues harmonica hero | NL

Harp master Pieter ‘Big Pete’ van der Pluijm may not yet be a familiar name in mainstream music, but he’s already well-established in the international Blues World.

At 23, Pete was handpicked for a European memorial tour to honor the music and memory of legendary harmonica player and vocalist Lester Butler (the Red Devils and Thirteen), backed by several of Lester’s original band mates. The project was met with great success and critical acclaim, so more tours and a CD by the Lester Butler Tribute Band soon followed, securing Pete’s arrival on the scene as one of the premier next generation blues performers out of the Benelux region.
