AN EVENING WITH THE LEGENDARY

PETER ROWAN

SOLD OUT!

We are very excited to have Peter Rowan return to Point Richmond Acoustic on Friday, February 10. Peter is a bona fide giant of roots music. Over his 5 decade career, he has sung and played with so many great artists, such as Bill Monroe, Dave Grisman, Tony Rice, Jerry Douglas, Laurie Lewis, Flaco Jimenez, Vassar Clements, Jerry Garcia, and Del McCoury. As a bandleader he has worked many of the finest players including Blain Sprouse, Nina Gerber, Mike Witcher, Sharon Gilchrist, Paul Knight, Keith Little and Bryan Sutton.  Peter's musical world is vast and eclectic. He’s as comfortable singing Reggae, Hawaiian music or Bluegrass – a true missing link.

 

But what really elevates Peter into the pantheon of Folk Icons is all the fine songs he’s written. “Walls of Time” has been recorded by Bill Monroe, Emmylou Harris and Ricky Skaggs. “Midnight Moonlight” is another standard performed by bluegrass bands everywhere.  "Panama Red" was a hit for the New Riders of the Purple Sage, and his own records feature wonderful songs like “I’ll Be There for You, “Angel Island” and “The Free Mexican Airforce.”

 

Peter Rowan has played for crowds of thousands, and tens of thousands. And we, the folks at Point Richmond Music get to see him up close and personal, accompanied by Mike Witcher and Sharon Gilchrist.

 

Resident musicians Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan open. Don’t miss this show!

Concerts are held at the beautiful and historic First Methodist Church of Point Richmond, at 201 Martina Avenue in Point Richmond. Tickets will be available in advance in early September  We would like to thank our  Sponsors Point Richmond Music and California Delicious gift baskets.

About Point Richmond Acoustic
In our sixth season,  Point Richmond Acoustic is sponsored by Point Richmond Music and the First Methodist Church. The church itself is intimate and an acoustic marvel. Built more than a century ago, it's an octagonal wooden prism that appears to be built by nautical carpenters. It’s like listening to music inside a guitar.

 

Our program is non-religious. A friendly no-pressure environment – it’s all about the music here! Ample parking is available downtown, just two blocks away.
