Tony Rice & Peter Rowan – Quartet

Cybergrass has a story announcing a January 23, 2007 release date for the new CD from Peter Rowan and Tony Rice. The CD is to be titled Quartet and will, of course, feature Rice and Rowan, along with Sharon Gilchrist on mandolin and vocals, and Bryn Davies on bass and vocals.

Highlights include five originals by Peter Rowan (“Dustbowl Children,” “Perfection,” “Let the Harvest Go to Seed,” “The Walls of Time,” and a stunning re-imagining of the Old and In the Way classic “Moonlight Midnight”), and a mix of bluegrass standards (“The Sunny Side of the Mountain”), reborn traditional material (“Shady Grove”), and poignant covers of Patti Smith (“Trespasses”) and Townes Van Zandt (“To Live Is to Fly”).

No further information or audio clips were available anywhere that I could find. As soon as we do know more we’ll update you.
