The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band returns to Australia to play New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria over this coming March and April.
Consisting of outstanding musicians with over 100 years of combined recording and performance experience, guitarist Peter Rowan will be joined by Paul Knight, bass; Chris Henry, mandolin; and Patrick Sauber, banjo. Having graced the stages of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Grey Fox, Merlefest, Rothbury Australia’s National Folk Festival and numerous other festivals domestically and abroad, audiences are entertained with original and traditional songs executed in vibrant harmony.
In April 2013 Peter Rowan, joined by members of his current Bluegrass Band, released The Old School, a magnificent blending of old school sounds and players (Del McCoury, Jesse McReynolds, Bobby Osborne and Buddy Picher) with some of the bright young talent such as Chris Henry, Ronnie & Robbie McCoury performing memorable new songs such as “Doc Watson Morning”, “Drop The Bone” and “Keepin’ It Between The Lines (Old School)”.
The Old School followed the group’s debut album for Nashville’s Compass Records- Legacy. The recording, featuring traditional and original compositions, was produced by Compass owner/recording artist Alison Brown and includes Ricky Skaggs, Gillian Welch, David Rawlings and Del McCoury. Legacy received a Grammy nomination in 2010. Since then the prolific singer songwriter has recorded and released Peter Rowan’s Twang an Groove Vol. 1 on There Records and Dharma Blues on Omnivore Records.
