Legendary US Bluegrass singer-songwriter and Grammy award winner, Peter Rowan, “the voice of Bluegrass”, returns to Australia with a new album, and a hot new trio, featuring Chris Henry on mandolin and vocals, and George Jackson on fiddle, banjo and vocals. Chris Henry is one of the most highly regarded young musicians on the American Bluegrass scene, “the premiere Monroe-style mandolinist of his generation”. New Zealand-born Melbourne-based, George Jackson, is a brilliant young fiddle and banjo-player, winner of many awards, including the 2012 Tamworth Golden Fiddle Award, and the Banjo Competition at the 2013 Rockygrass
