Peter Karp (born in Leonia, NJ) is an American roots-based folk and blues singer, songwriter, guitarist, and piano player. He currently resides in Leiper's Fork, TN. He also records as Peter Karp & Sue Foley.

Karp began his career by playing in New York City clubs as a teen in an art-blues-punk band called “They Came From Houses. He returned to performing music in the 1990s as "Peter Karp and The Roadshow Band". The group released an independent live album in 2000 called Live at the American Roadhouse. The next album, Roadhouse, was released in 2002 on Back Bender Records.

He released The Turning Point in 2003. The album Shadows and Cracks was released in June 2007.

Karp met Canadian musician Sue Foley while both were performing at Ottawa Bluesfest. They later began recording as Peter Karp & Sue Foley.

Once, while playing ball with his traveling companion, Delilah Dog, an ash-heavy cigarette dangling from his lip and a beat-up guitar propped against the idling RV, a passerby asked, “Sir, are you a vagabond?” To which Karp replied, “Well, I’m a songwriter and musician,so I guess the answer is yes.”
