Peter Mulder 1953 – 2022…

I am so very sad to hear the passing of Peter Mulder aged 68

This report from Jonathan Taylor 
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Hyde Park, 26/06/2022.
The band ease into “Rich Woman”, and as this exemplary group of musicians set the tone, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant walk onstage, their relaxed, confident demeanour and their smiles already an indicator of the show we are about to witness.
