This is the legendary singer-songwriter’s fifth appearance at the Ranch in the past five years, and the intimate fireside event is expected to be a sellout.

The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band’s first album, Legacy, with guest artists that included Ricky Skaggs, Gillian Welch, David Rawlings and Del McCoury, was nominated for a Grammy in 2010. The band’s second album, The Old School, was a 2013 nominee for IBMA Album of the Year. In addition to Rowan on guitar and lead vocals, current band members are banjo player Keith Little and bass player Paul Knight, both of whom have been with the band since its formation; mandolin player Chris Henry, who was featured on The Old School; and fiddle player Blaine Sprouse, the newest addition to the ensemble. The band has appeared in festival venues around the world, including Merlefest, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Grey Fox, Rothbury, Australia’s National Folk Festival and many others, and was featured in January 2015 on the PBS radio show A Prairie Home Companion.

Peter Rowan first burst onto the musical scene in the early 1960’s as a member of Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys and the co-writer, with Monroe, of the bluegrass classic “The Walls of Time.” He later became involved in an eclectic variety of rock, folk and bluegrass projects, including a memorable collaboration with Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Vassar Clements and John Kahn in the 1970’s bluegrass band Old & In The Way. He embarked on a solo career in the late 1970’s and still tours internationally as a solo singer-songwriter.

The $60.00 ticket price also includes dinner before the show, with dinner at 6 pm and music beginning at 7:30. Special overnight package which includes dinner, show, lodging and breakfast is $140.
