SATURDAY

Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band

Rowan, a bluegrass titan who has signed on with Charlottesville-based Rebel Records, in 2018 released the album “Carter Stanley’s Eyes.” The disc is a combination of original music and covers learned from the likes of Carter and Ralph Stanley, A.P. Carter, Lead Belly and Bill Monroe. Rowan first made his name as guitarist and lead singer for bluegrass pioneer Monroe in the early 1960s, and his connections to first-generation ‘grassers shine through, even as he forges his own musical path.
