Peter's tribute CD, "Grey Cat", presents 14 of Macon's best-loved songs in bluegrass style. "Grey Cat" , on Hen Cackle records (HC-504), has already received glowing reviews from several music magazines, including Bluegrass Unlimited and Banjo Newsletter. "Grey Cat" features performances by Peter with Byron Berline, Bill Bryson, Dennis Caplinger, Dan Crary, and Wayne Shrubsall.
