Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band - Keystone, CO 8/6/2011

We made the run up to Keystone to catch the Bluegrass & Brews festival, and to see two sets by Peter Rowan. The brewfest was choked with people, but Peter delivered on the main stage. A later, second show, commenced in the performing arts center, and blew us away. Awesome!

The second setlist is more fuzzy. The first four or five songs were the same, as Peter, IMHO, wanted to more fully flush out those melodies in the silence that the evening audience allowed him. It was *SO GOOD*! He then cut into a number of his other tunes. I've heard Land of the Navajo many times, but he played the shit out of this one. I thought the Vulture Peak was really well done as well, but that's an old favorite of mine.

There was also a workshop and then a third set at the beer tasting on Sunday the 7th that we we're not able to attend.
