Peter Roller has been exploring guitar styles in a variety of cultural directions since discovering the blues of Mississippi Fred McDowell and the bluegrass of Flatt & Scruggs as a teen. Over the past 30 years, while working as a professional musician and college instructor, he has written a body of guitar-led original music that leans variously towards Hawaiian slack key, bossa nova, Piedmont blues and steel guitar jazz. Roller released his first full length CD of such pieces, Blue Fog, in Spring 2010. Roller teaches in the Music Department at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he has played and recorded with many area performers. He was also the guitar accompanist for first generation country bluesman, Yank Rachell, acting as producer and playing on his Bling Pig release Blues Mandolin Man.
