Peter Buffett's Concert and Conversation is an entertaining and informative look into the life of a musician with a unique upbringing. As Warren Buffett's son, Peter's open discussion about the values he was taught, the lessons he learned, and their effect in shaping his career serve as a testament that life is never a straight road. No matter what your background, Buffett's take on "earning your own reward" will find resonance with your own life story. Buffett is an Emmy award-winner whose career spans over 28 years of success as a professional songwriter, composer, film scorer, producer, artist, performer, recording engineer, indie label owner, and music marketer. Peter scored the "Fire Dance" in the Oscar-winning film Dances with Wolves and performed at the film’s premiere. He composed the full score for 500 Nations, a CBS miniseries produced by Kevin Costner, as well as two songs on the soundtrack for The Scarlet Letter. Peter cochairs NoVo Foundation, a charitable nonprofit with over $1 billion in pledged funding by his father. For more information, visit myspace.com/peterbuffett.
