Most everyone in the Woodstock and Kingston musical communities knows, or has played with, Peter Buettner – an extraordinarily talented musician, composer, carpenter and artist – and one of the kindest people you could ever hope to meet.

Peter has played with a whole boatload of bands and musicians, and has been there to support the community through his art – for years.

Peter has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease – a turn of events that has, understandably, turned his life upside down. The tremors that accompany Parkinson’s have made it impossible for Peter to earn his living as a carpenter and prevent him from playing and performing on the sax and flute that have been such a huge part of his life for decades.

Currently, Peter is immersed in the process of strengthening his immune system and doing whatever he can to moderate the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

It has not been an easy time for him.

Time and again, over the years, Peter has been there for his community, playing countless benefit concerts to support people in need. Now it is our time to return the favor.

To raise the money Peter needs to compensate for his lost wages, pay for treatments not covered by his health insurance, and buy him the time to continue developing his new life as a composer and creator of music, we held a musical fundraiser and silent auction in his honor.

It was WILDLY successful

The music was amazing… the auction was amazing…. hundreds of folks came out, and over a dozen bands. An amazing event from start to finish.
