Bluegrass artist Peter Rowarn plays Isis on Nov. 5

Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter and bluegrass star Peter Rowan will perform at Isis Restaurant and Music Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 5. 5 p.m. dinner seating, 7:30 p.m. bluegrass session and 9 p.m. show. $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

The show is part of Isis’s new plan for its regular bluegrass sessions “that makes the event more accessible to a wider range of music lovers and foodies.” According to a press release, ” Every Tuesday evening at 7:30, the audience is invited to enjoy professional level bluegrass music on a world-class stage and sound system. A different host configuration performs each week from 7:30-9:30 and then a bluegrass jam ensues for the remainder of the evening. The jam, while open to all levels and ages, has been successful in attracting the best bluegrass musicians that Western North Carolina has to offer.”

About Peter Rowan: His “bluegrass career started as a Blue Grass Boy in 1964. By Bill Monroe’s own admission, Peter sounded a lot like him. When the two harmonized together, they were said to have reached ‘heavenly heights.’ Monroe & Rowan co-wrote what has already become a bluegrass standard, Walls Of Time. Peter’s touring bluegrass band consists of outstanding players Keith Little, banjo; Paul Knight, bass; and Mike Witcher, dobro. The band features original songs written by Rowan along with Carter Family and Bill Monroe favorites.”
