Peter Grudzien is an American country/psychedelic singer-songwriter and musician. His music is well-known in the outsider music community for its idiosyncratic instrumentation and often openly gay subject matter. Grudzien's music has strong roots in country, as he grew up listening to such artists as Johnny Cash, who he met as a young man. In the 1960's, Grudzien began performing on the Greenwich Village coffeehouse circuit, where he met many notable folk musicians, including Bob Dylan. It was also during this time that Grudzien supposedly participated in the Stonewall riots for gay rights.
