An Evening with Peter RowanPurchase tickets online
December 06 8:00 pm
Peter Rowan is a bluegrass master. His musical roots go back to Bill Monroe. He didn't just hear recordings—he played guitar and sang lead with Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys in the mid-1960s. After stints in Earth Opera, Muleskinner, and the Marin County rock group Seatrain, he co-founded Old and in the Way with Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. Since then, he's recorded more than 30 albums and earned six Grammy nominations. His classic originals include "Panama Red," "Lonesome L.A. Cowboy," and "Moonlight Midnight." With his consummate playing on guitar and mandolin, his seemingly effortless singing style, and his impeccable taste in songs, he's a joy to see and hear.
His band tonight includes a Who's Who of stellar musicians. With Michael Witcher on dobro, Keith Little on banjo, Paul Knight on bass, Blaine Sprouse on fiddle, Sharon Gilchrist on mandolin, Jody Stecher on guitar, and all of them singing and playing whatever other instruments they feel the urge to play, you can expect a glorious bluegrass celebration, led by a true master.
