It's Not Easy Being Green...

At least, according to Kermit the Frog, it isn't. But, if you asked music2work2 's MySpace friend, Green Man Music, he may tell you differently. Green Man Music is Doug Peters, vocalist, playing guitar and occasional percussion, joined by a variety of other musicians on some of the sessions. Green Man Music is classified as Acoustic/Progressive/Folk. The four songs available to hear on Green Man Music's MySpace page are guitar driven, folk stories, sung by Peters, whose voice is Dylan-like. My favorite of the four is "Eighteen Miles" because of the change in tempo that occurs several times during this piece.

Green Man Music has 2 albums to his credit - Sacred Water and La Vaquera, and is included on a compilation double cd, Dark Britannica, along with 29 other dark folk music tracks. Another cd, Gingerwitch Green, is planned for Fall '07.

If you are a fan of folk music, I think you will enjoy checking out the songs of Green Man Music.

Tom Palminteri

Tom Palminteri, a friend from MySpace, is a singer/songwriter and plays piano and guitar. He is out of West Islip, NY. His music is classified as Indie/Acoustic/Alternative. Tom Palminteri started the band Eric's In Oregon in the late '80s but has more recently gone solo. The 4 songs available to hear on Palminteri's MySpace page are upbeat with a sort of folk music sound. Of the four, I think my favorite is "On a Barbwire" followed by "Strong" as a close second.
