Charlottesville's own Peyton Tochterman is coming home; at least for one night.  Before a concert at the Southern Friday night, March 8, Peyton will first stop by Sunset Road for a visit with host Pete Marshall.

Peyton is, like all of us, many things.  A former sports writer, a cancer survivor, a former NCAA athlete (if you call being ninth out of a possible ten on his golf team athletics)… He’s been hit by a train, had Kenny G.’s grand piano fall on his head, gotten to pick out Trisha Yearwood’s dress one night (they settled on the red one, by the way), has made Yo Yo Ma laugh with a joke and can’t remember what joke, has helped cast bronze monuments and sculptures for renowned sculpture Cy Twombly, has traveled across America on Harleys with his dad, and has gone to the far reaches of western China to record monks blowing really, really big horns…  And through it all, he has been a songwriter.

Peyton has the privilege of being the first to step foot on stage and perform at the illustrious Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA, and has shared the stage with Levon Helm, Robert Earl Keen, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Richard Buckner, Sons of Bill, Ellis Paul, Old School Freight Train among others.
