Boston, MA -- In 1965, a young Peter Rowan joined Bill Monroe & The Blue Grass Boys, recording fourteen songs with Monroe before leaving the band in 1967. Tony Rice is the premier blue grass/newgrass guitar player today. His stellar career has included stints with J.D. Crowe & The New South, and the David Grisman Quintet. He has had a successful solo career and also fronts his own quintet, The Tony Rice Unit. Together, they have toured as the Peter Rowan & Tony Rice Quartet, which ultimately produced two Rounder Records recordings. This package, Rowan & Rice performing the traditional sounds of Bill Monroe with The Travelin' McCourys, is of historic proportion.
