Grammy-award winner Peter Rowan’s career as a singer-songwriter spans over five decades. From his early years playing under the tutelage of Bluegrass veteran Bill Monroe, to his time in Old & In the Way with Jerry Garcia and Vasser Clements, to his breakout as a solo musician and bandleader, Rowan has built a devoted, international fan base through a solid stream of recordings, collaborative projects, and constant touring. Born in Wayland, Massachusetts to a musical family, Peter formed his first band when he was still in high school, and began his professional career in 1963 in the Bluegrass Boys, led by the founding father of bluegrass, Bill Monroe. The late ‘60s and early 70’s saw Rowan involved in a number of rock, folk and bluegrass projects, and in the late 70’s he embarked on a solo career. These days, in addition to solo performances, he plays in several bands: the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, Big Twang Theory, Twang n Groove, and The Free Mexican Air Force. Peter’s 42nd and latest release is the 2018 Carter Stanley’s Eyes on Rebel Records.
When Patrick Landeza became the first mainland-based artist to win the Nā Hōkū Hanohano award in 2013, he told the audience, “Being born and raised on the mainland never made me any less Hawaiian.” Having initially learned how to play slack key guitar from family, Landeza later apprenticed with slack key legend, Raymond Kāne, and was mentored by slack key masters such as Cyril Pahinui, George Kuo, and Dennis Kamakahi. Landeza is a well-respected slack key instructor and has taught classes and at music camps nationwide, as well as had his lessons published in Acoustic Guitar Magazine. After successful forays into radio, catering, and concert production, Landeza is beginning to focus his attention on future generations. In 2013 he authored a children’s book, “Danny’s Hawaiian Journey,” and has partnered with schools and youth groups to provide cultural education through ukulele lessons in his grade school classes. Landeza’s efforts and enthusiasm have not gone unrecognized. Aside from a Nā Hōkū Hanohano award, he also became the youngest recipient of the Kapalakiko Aloha Spirit award at the age of 34. In 2011 he won the Hawaiian Music Award, and in 2012 he shared his music and aloha spirit with an appreciative audience at Carnegie Hall.
