In the process Peter has managed to win the prestigious Golden Damper Award at Tamworth on three occasions, was awarded the Reciter of the Year at the National Folk Festival and was the 2012 Australian Bush Poetry champion. Peter has released two CDs: C'Mon for a Laugh and a Cry and Australian Made.
