Peter Kfoury

solo instrumentalist Jazz / Folk/ Fusion


Peter Kfoury plays the oud, a melodic ancestor of the guitar. Although a Middle Eastern instrument, Peter has adapted it to produce engaging versions of jazz, pop, and blues standards, including Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, Sinatra, and Coltrane. Cocktail hour into dinner reception, Peter’s masterful performance on this unique instrument is sure to enhance your event. 

We recommend Peter solo or as a duo with a percussionist.
