About the music

If it is your desire to have elegant, intimate, beautiful and refined music for your special event...

Harry George Pellegrin is an author of mystery novels, a musician and recording artist. Primarily a guitarist, Harry's three 2005 recordings are keyboard-driven and most easily classified as New Age, though we don't like to consider the music in a 'genre box.' The Guitar (2008) and Old and New (2010) are solo classical guitar recordings. Harry G. Pellegrin's first published novel, LOW END, is a murder mystery set in South Yonkers and New York City in the late 1980's. The characters, all derived from friends and acquaintances, try to investigate the death of one of their own -- not so much to solve a crime, but to keep from sharing a similar fate. LOW END has been met with great critical acclaim. The sequel, DEEP END, is available at lulu.com

Pellegrin is, foremost, a musician having performed numerous solo recitals in New York City as well as in many other cities in the United States. His two CD’s The Guitar and Old & New have been met with favorable reviews. He is a member of the adjunct music faculty at Union College in Schenectady, New York and an author of murder mysteries. Pellegrin wrote for Soundboard, The Journal of the Guitar Foundation of America and Ironhorse Magazine. Classic Guitar Method, A Comprehensive Method designed to transform the student from novice to recitalist, now in its fourth edition, combined Pellegrin’s writing skills with his musical expertise.
