Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band - Legacy CD

Featuring: Peter Rowan, Jody Stecher, Keith Little, Paul Knight; and special guests: Del McCoury, Ricky Scaggs, Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings. Produced by Alison Brown.

Since Rowan's tenure some 45 years ago with Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass, roots music icon Peter Rowan has blazed trails across an unsurpassed range of musical territory. Now, with producer Alison Brown at the helm of his Compass Records debut, "Legacy," he revisits the style that launched his career for the first time in more than a dozen years.

Backed by his veteran touring Bluegrass Band and a handful of guests that includes fellow Monroe graduates Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs, Tim O'Brien, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Rowan delivers a hefty dose of inspired singing and traditionally-informed but fresh original songs that bear his unmistakable stamp. From the searing "The Family Demon" through the delicious "So Good" and the ominous drive of "Jailer Jailer," "Legacy" presents a compelling set that reaffirms Rowan's stature as an unsurpassed master of the music's ancient tones-and its modern forms.
