Peter Rowan will be performing at the 2014 Sedona Bluegrass Festival

Peter Rowan will be performing at the 2014 Sedona Bluegrass Festival | Acoustic Guitars and Bluegrass | Scoop.it

The Sedona Bluegrass Festival has drawn some big names through the years. Now in its eighth season, the event continues to bring top national and local talent to an intimate outdoor venue in red-rock country.


"It all started off with one of Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys. And we are tickled to bring in another one of Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, and that's Peter Rowan," said festival director Bert Harclerode.


Monroe, recognized as the founder of bluegrass music, took a lot of talented musicians into his band over the years, Harclerode said, and Rowan was one of them.

Rowan is a guitarist, singer and songwriter with wide appeal.

"He's got such unique style as a songwriter," Harclerode said. "It appeals to a real broad audience. Both those that are new and those that know their bluegrass."

Nearing the end of Chatham County Line's Tightrope release show at the Carolina Theatre, frontman Dave Wilson reminisced about seeing the Del McCoury Band there in the late '90s. He even pointed out where he sat in the balcony. Wilson recalled the impact of watching McCoury and his boys gather around a single microphone; that show helped convince him to pursue bluegrass. He cited the Chatham County Line show at the Carolina Theatre as “full-circle moment."

The Songwriter In Me from Donna Ulisse | Acoustic Guitars and Bluegrass | Scoop.it
Donna Ulisse has made quite a name for herself as a songwriter this past few years. Since 2007 she’s had six album releases made up almost entirely of her original bluegrass and Gospel songs. That’s quite an accomplishment, measured in volume alone.

The European roots of North Carolina's Kruger Brothers - Charleston City Paper

The European roots of North Carolina's Kruger Brothers - Charleston City Paper | Acoustic Guitars and Bluegrass | Scoop.it

Maybe it doesn't matter where the mountains are, so long as there are mountains.

The Kruger Brothers, one of the finest bands of their kind in the world, perform progressively minded, classically conscious music that's wildly diverse but ultimately rooted in the tradition of American bluegrass, a genre born in the foothills of Appalachia. But Jens and Uwe Kruger grew up in the shadows of another mountain range: the Swiss Alps.
