Unwound's  repertoire includes compositions by Bruce Cockburn, Nanci Griffith, Bert Jansch, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Sheryl Crowe, Bonnie Raitt, The Black Crows, Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne and a lot more. Their versatile style includes blues, rock, classic rock, traditional and contemporary folk and ballad tunes.

        Peter's lifelong music career has taken him from electric blues/rock guitar to graduating from the Milwaukee Conservatory of Music as a "Master of American Fingerstyle Guitar" and he has been performing for nearly 40 years. His grasp of deeply intense solo guitar pieces by artists such as Leo Kottke , Pierre Bensusan, and Michael Hedges, is nothing short of astonishing.  His many performances include an international appearance in Japan. 

    Gloria began her music career after meeting Peter who became both her mentor and teacher.  In addition to guitar and percussion, she brings to the duo her main instrument; her voice.

    They have performed together regularly in the Lakeshore area for over 20 years at festivals, clubs, museums, and private events. Their voices and instruments have been heard internationally as they embrace opportunities to perform during their travels.  

Unwound was the 2005 headliner for Acoustic Fest, and have opened for John Hammond Jr. as well as the internationally famous Pierre Bensusan.
