Gary Estes

the lover of music

“John Gallagher introduced me to the Peas around 2001. They perform the type of music I love – folk. Folk music tells such wonderful tales,” said Gary Estes “I was very much influenced by the Chad Mitchell Trio, The Kingston Trio and of course, Peter, Paul and Mary. But, I also have a keen interest in maritime and Celtic music.” According to his fellow Peas, “Gary keeps us grounded to the traditional.” A retired DuPont chemical engineer, whose job relocated him innumerable times including Ireland, Gary always managed to find a venue where his beloved folk music was being performed. He plays a 6-string and 12-string guitar as well as the banjo. His guitar of choice is a Martin. The love of this instrument is so encompassing that on his honeymoon in January 2002, he scheduled a visit to the Martin factory. “I thoroughly enjoy playing our weekly gig not only for the music but for the love of the audience.” Gary is married to Jane and enjoys history, “specifically the Civil War.”
