If you don’t already know who Richard Peterson is, let this be your introduction.  

For decades, Richard has held the title of Most Interesting Man in Seattle – a pianist and street musician with amazing skill, a fascinating history, and an undying (and mutual) love for broadcast personalities.  

Ten years ago Clatter’s Vince Werner followed him around and put together this ‘day in the life' documentary in honor of his 60th birthday.  Health issues have slowed Richard down a bit, but he still occasionally plays for coins outside local sports venues, and would like everyone to know that hi is available for piano gigs! (We can handle the booking - just call.)

At almost 70 years old, Richard Peterson shows no sign of slowing down...not if he can help it.
