Peter Rowan's Twang an' Groove Band, Old Habits 

When: Fri., July 12, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $15-18

One of music's great polyglots, Peter Rowan sports a manifest of collaborators and bands, albums and influences that reads like a strange and wonderful map of Americana. Though he's known best either as a progressive bluegrass guy or the anchor of Old and in the Way that wasn't Garcia or Grisman, Rowan has skipped between reggae and rock, roadhouse and instrumental showmanship during the last five decades. He's a link between Bill Monroe and The Grateful Dead, between Bob Marley and Tony Rice.

But Rowan is more than a consistent footnote. As a bandleader, he remains incredibly active, a 70-year-old player prowling through his interests with the tenacity of someone who wants to cover as much ground as a lifetime will allow. Tonight, he arrives with the five-piece Twang an' Groove outfit, an electric unit whose deep backbeat allows Rowan to waltz from the honky-tonk to the dancehall in the space of several meters, belting his blues and yodeling all the way. With Old Habits. —Grayson Currin
