Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band

The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band consists of outstanding musicians with over 100 years of combined recording and performance experience. Joining guitarist Peter Rowan are Eric Thorin- bass, Chris Henry-mandolin and vocals, Julian Pinelli (fiddle) and Max Wareham (banjo). Peter’s bluegrass ensemble has graced the stages of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Grey Fox, Merlefest, Rothbury Australia’s National Folk Festival and numerous other festivals domestically and abroad, entertaining audiences with original and traditional songs executed in vibrant harmony.

In April 2013 Peter Rowan 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.

In 2018 Peter, joined by Patrick Sauber, Blaine Sprouse, Paul Knight, Chris Henry and Jamie Oldaker and special guests Tim O’Brien, Don Rigsby, and Jack Lawrence, recorded The Light in Carter Stanley’s Eyes for Rebel Records. A new album for Rebel Records will be released in 2022 with guest appearance by Molly Tuttle and Billy Strings.
