Peeter Volkonski (born 12 September 1954 in Tallinn) is an Estonian rock-musician, composer, actor, and theatre director. He became famous with the punk band Propeller, founded in 1978.

In 2015 Volkonski was Free Party's candidate in the Tartu constituency for Estonian parliamentary election.[1] He received 916 votes, which was not enough for a seat in the parliament.[2]

Peeter Volkonski is a son of harpsichordist and composer Prince Andrei Volkonsky, and a great-great-great-grandson of Prince Pyotr Mikhailovich Volkonsky[3][4][5], being thus a descendant of a princely Rurikid family[citation needed].
