Grammy-award winner and six-time nominee Peter Rowan is a singer-songwriter with a five-decade career. Rowan began in 1963 as the singer, rhythm guitarist and songwriter for the Bluegrass Boys, led by the founding father of bluegrass, Bill Monroe. Later, Rowan, David Grisman, Jerry Garcia, Vassar Clements and John Kahn later formed Old & In the Way. It was during this incarnation that Rowan penned the song "Panama Red," a subsequent classic hit for the New Riders of the Purple Sage. Joining Peter are Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen.

His Dirty Kitchen is comprised of banjoist Mike Munford (IBMA Banjo Player of the Year), guitarist Chris Luquette (IBMA Instrumentalist of the Year) and doghouse bassist Dan Booth. Their simmering bluegrass/newgrass stew features instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills so hot, they also earned 2012 and 2013 Best Bluegrass Band honors from the Washington Area Music Association.
