Peter Ostroushko and Dean Magraw
Extra-terrestrial folk- jazz
This team was one of the early duos that started folk forum off in this fabulous musical journey. Peter was well known back in those days as the best fiddle mandolin player in the country as a regular on Prairie Home Companion. He brought Dean Magraw with him for his first appearance at folk forum. Not only did Dean’s skill on guitar match and compliment the exquisite instrumentals of Peter…the combination of their two personalities and senses of humor infected all of us with unbridled laughter that still rings in memory. They are still great, they still do an exceptional show, and last time I checked…they were still gut-rippin’ funny. I think maybe they sing more and their voices have only improved with age.
