Peter Winne is a first year MA candidate studying cultural diplomacy at Gallatin. His individualized program explores how the performing arts can foster mutual understanding between people of different backgrounds and nations of origin. Before coming to Gallatin, Pete spent the better part
of a decade touring with the Portland, Maine-based band Tumbling Bones. His tenure with the group included two State Department-sponsored tours of Eastern Europe to perform, teach, and collaborate with local musicians in Ukraine, Georgia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Estonia. Pete is a singer, guitarist, banjo-player, and tap dancer. He still doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up.
