Peter Rowan has been singing and writing songs since before he met Bill Monroe and became a bluegrass boy.  Bill infused Peter with the attitude that if you can play bluegrass music you can play anything. As Peter moved forward with his own musical career he took Bill at his word infusing a variety of global sounds to create his own style and sound that accompanies his melodic voice.  

The Tao of Bluegrass – A Portrait of Peter Rowan is a documentary that takes the viewer along a journey showing off Peter’s talents from the late 60’s, 70’s with Old and in the Way and beyond to the recording of Dharma Blues, his current CD.   His CD Dharma Blues was inspired by his practice of Buddhism and his love for creating sounds with fellow musicians. This creation is yet another jewel amongst his many published CD’s.  He has created new songs that we will come to love and sing over and over again.  The documentary includes glimpses into the recording sessions at the famous Plant Studios with producer John Chelew and special guests that are featured on the CD.  
Learn about Peter’s career through this documentary that includes old footage of; Seatrain, Peter as a bluegrass boy and The Rowan Brothers at Winterland.  Also included are interviews with Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, David Grisman, Ricky Skaggs and many more. Enjoy listening to Dharma Blues that creates a sound that echoes his spiritual being, a songwriting journey Peter embarked on many years ago.
