Here are some folks I've both recorded and performed with:

The Grateful Dead

Gold Album. Hey Warner Brothers, I'd sure like one for my wall. And a Platinum one for “Doin That Rag” on the Best of the Grateful Dead.


This is me with my National Model D

Rodney Crowell
Herb Pedersen
Alex Harvey
Hoyt Axton
Jon Batson
Tim Hardin
Guy Clark
Fast Idyll
Tom Tally
Jay Howlett
The Dillards
Tony Elman
Chuck McCabe
Richard Greene
The Westerleys
The Persuasions
David Campbell
David Anderson
Glenn MacPherson
Howard Yearwood
Paul Edward Sanchez
The Incredible String Band
Robin Williamson and his Merry Band


I’m on two tracks of this Persuasions album. One of them, “It Must Have Been the Roses”, is just the five Persuasions and me on 10-string dobro. What a delight! The other track is “Ripple”, and features the capable mandolin stylings of Eric Thompson. Good stuff!

Some I've done studio work for:

Tony Toni Tone
(Double Platinum Album)

I played pedal steel on “(Lay Your Head On My) Pillow”. It was a great session and a fine release. The tune is also on a ‘Best Of’compilation.

It would be certainly be nice if they sent me a Double Platinum Album for the wall. They said they would. Years ago.

I'm listed as “Pete Corant”. Funny.
