Rowan/Rice tour dates coming up

Peter Rowan & Tony Rice - QuartetWhen we posted in November about the upcoming January ’07 release of the new CD from Peter Rowan and Tony Rice, we mentioned that they would tour in support of the project this year.

They are about to embark on a string of east coast dates together running from March 14-25, and will reunite for a performance at Merlefest in late April.

The new CD is entitled Quartet, and features Peter and Tony along with Bryn Davies on bass and Sharon Gilchrist on mandolin. This same lineup will be featured on the east coast swing.

    Unless things have changed again in the last week………
    Bryn is no longer with the band. She left to play bass and her natural instrument, Cello, with Patty Giffin. She is also doing various gigs with Guy Clark. I think she is still going to do some select dates with the Tony Rice Unit, but not the quartet.

    She and I just worked on a banjo record for Mike Sumner, winner of the banjo contest at Merlefest, Rockygrass, and Winfield. All in the same year. (2001 I think)

    Sharon Gilchrist will still be doing some dates with Peter & Tony, but Mike Bub has been called to do the bass work for much of the shows on the schedule. I’m not sure which lineup will show up each night. I know Bub can’t do them all since he has commitments with Dale Ann Bradley this summer.

    Musical Chairs!
    Cheers, PHil
