Meredith Godreau


MG is a musician and singer-songwriter who performs as Gregory and the Hawk. She plays accordion, piano, clarinet, oboe, violin, viola, harp and guitar, and writes gentle, melodic, folky songs. Originally from Medfield, MA, Godreau moved to Potsdam, NY when she was twelve. She took the pseudonym Gregory and the Hawk in 2003 to avoid being pigeonholed as a singer-songwriter, despite citing her influences as Nick Drake, Liz Phair and PJ Harvey. (The name was derived from her brother, Gregory, and his imaginary childhood hawk.) She has released five albums and several EPs.

Peter Green


Born Peter Allen Greenbaum, 29 October 1946, in Bethnal Green, London. PG is a blues-rock guitarist and founder of the band Fleetwood Mac.

PG’s songs have been covered by Santana, Aerosmith, Midge Ure and Tom Petty. He was inducted into The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
