A small but very appreciative crowd ventured out on a damp Wednesday night, to The Old Museum Concert Hall in Brisbane. This beautiful old building rang with the fabulous vocal harmonies of The Redlands Bluegrass Boys, who kicked off the concert, treating the crowd to some new songs Rain and Snow, Where I Come From and Dim Lights, Thick Smoke as well as songs from their self titled CD.

I think it would be fair to say, most of the concert goers were already Peter Rowan fans, but without exception they left the venue even bigger admirers of Mr Rowan. He had us all spellbound with his amazing story telling ability, not only the wonderful stories between songs but the stories told in the songs themselves.

In his distinctive and familiar tenor voice he treated us to some of his hit songs, Panama Red, Moonlight Midnight and Land of the Navajo. Accompanied only by his fabulous guitar playing, Peter knows how to hold an audience.

If you have a chance to see this legend and his music, you won’t be sorry.
