A performance by Carl Peterson, whether for a few thousand people or for a few dozen, is best described as a warm, everyone-involved, familiar evening-at-home experience. And home is where Carl Peterson was first introduced to music and song. He learned the traditional songs of Scotland, Ireland, and England, as well as contemporary music of the times, from family and friends alike. After learning to play guitar and banjo, Carl added American folk songs and storytelling to his repertoire, and took it all from Scotland to Canada, then later to America, via radio and television.

I was driving home one day, around sunset, in southeastern Pennsylvania, when I saw this sky. I fortunately had my camera with me and quickly pulled over, and took pictures. Is this what Pictish King Angus and his men saw before their battle?
According to tradition, St. Andrew was put to death by the Romans in Patras, Southern Greece by being crucified on a diagonal cross. The diagonal shape of this cross is said to be the basis for the Cross of St. Andrew which appears on the Scottish Flag.
One legend of St. Andrew involves the Pictish King Angus. When faced with a large invading army, King Angus prayed to St Andrew for divine guidance. A saltire (the diagonal cross) appeared in the shape of a white cloud against the blue sky. Angus won a decisive victory and decreed that Andrew would be the patron saint of his country.
