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.
