(1925 – 2002) Pete Pedersen had a hit record with “Peg O My Heart” in 1947 as a member of the Harmonicats. He played with various groups before going solo in the mid-1950s. Over the years, Pedersen would perform at countless music festivals and harmonica-related events. He moved to Memphis in 1969 to become a writer for William B. Tanner (later known as Media General) where he wrote, arranged and recorded thousands of classic jingles, songs, and scores. Acknowledged as one of the world’s finest harmonica players, he also wrote two concertos for harmonica.
In 2007 a brass note in Pete's honor was placed on The Beale Street Walk of Fame.
Located in Memphis, Tennessee, Beale Street is the state’s #1 tourist attraction. Pete’s note, at the corner of Second and Beale is right in front of B.B. King’s Blues Club, where it is flanked by Charlie Musselwhite’s note on the left, and B.B. King’s note on the right.
