Peter Rowan to Perform at Mary Lou's

Date Posted: 1998-02-14

Peter Rowan is a popular 'cult' bluegrass singer, never hitting the main stream, but an artist who has a loyal following after 12 independent records and many tours. Rowan writes, sings, yodels, and plays the saxophone and stringed instruments.

In 1963, he joined the Mother Bay State Entertainers as a mandolin player and singer and recorded The String Band Project album. In November of the next year, Rowan found a job with Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys as a singer and rhythm guitarist. It was with Monroe that Rowan found bluegrass more and more exciting with its blues and traditional ballads.

Rowan eventually left Monroe's band to join the Earth Opera, a folk-rock band. Rowan began writing songs during this time and the group soon got a deal with Elektra records, recorded albums and went on tour, opening for The Doors frequently. With various bands, Rowan has recorded twelve albums and his songs have been recorded by many artists, including George Strait and Ricky Skaggs. His most recent album is Bluegrass Boy, a solo album dedicated to Bill Monroe, his mentor, who passed away.

Peter Rowan will perform at Mary Lou's Saloon in Naha on Friday, Feb. 13. The show is part of his Japanese tour. He is also here to record an album with Nenes, a popular Okinawan traditional and pop band, which will be produced by Sadao China. Tickets for the performance are 2500 and include one drink. If you are interested in attending, please call Bobby at 866-6107.
