Acoustic music legends Peter Rowan and Tony Rice continue their fruitful collaboration with Quartet, which finds the pair joined by bassist/vocalist Bryn Davies and mandolinist/vocalist Sharon Gilchrist. Recorded after extensive touring, Quartet introduces a dynamic and cohesive band grounded in traditional bluegrass, yet capable of spinning out extended improvisational journeys. The band's repertoire is equally intriguing, ranging from songs by Townes Van Zandt and Patti Smith to bluegrass standards, traditional ballads ('Cold Rain and Snow'), and classic Rowan originals ('Dust Bowl Children' and a stunningly reinvented 'Moonlight Midnight').
'The spellbinding synergy of Rowan's soulful serenades and Rice's masterful flatpicking ...it's almost as if the singer and accompanist are one in the same.' - Bluegrass Now
