This is the completion on Seth and Rob’s interview with Peter Rowan the first part of which is in Episode 74. We get a nice Vassar Clements-sourced story about Jimmy Martin right away and it leads to insight with regard to how Bill Monroe added power to his rhythmic approach. Peter talks about Uncle Pen’s cabin, why he left Monroe, and about how the bluegrass world reacted to the creation of a bluegrass band which contained a member of The Grateful Dead. He even offers up a story from Jerry Garcia’s “Bluegrass Pilgrimage,” relates where Old & In The Way found some of their more obscure songs and shares how Jerry responded to Peter’s own songwriting. Peter confides about how feeling he had an “obligation to the song and songwriting” can be at once liberating and limiting. He also discusses his view of and strategy behind his own career, and his resulting recent work - including his ode to significant musicians from his musical history the 2018 release, Carter Stanley’s Eyes. He also offers some insight to the lyrics of his songs, “Mississippi Moon” and “Midnight Moonlight.
