The 32nd Kent State Folk Festival revived Bluegrass Night with two giants of the genre. Peter Rowan and Tony Rice are not only on top of the list of Bluegrass performers, they are innovators as well, looking for ways to incorporate new sounds into the house that Bill Monroe built. Rowan played and sang alongside the master as a member of the Blue Grass Boys before heading in a different direction with David Grisman. Rice also spent time performing with Grisman, as well as stretching the boundaries with JD Crowe and the New South. Now, the pair comes together on stage with members of the next generation for outstanding musicianship with flair.
