Calling You From My Mountain (2022)

Peter Rowan

To say Peter Rowan’s second Rebel Records release Calling You From My Mountain contains multitudes is an understatement. It started as a homage to Rowan’s favorite Hank Williams album, Hank Williams Sings Luke the Drifter. Every song on this CD has a story. It starts with a rollicking rendition of Woody Guthrie’s "New York Town." "Light At the End of the World" echoes the sound of bluegrass gospel but takes its spiritual power from Rowan’s memories of visiting Hiroshima, Japan. He also performs "Little Joe" by A.P. Carter, Bill Monroe's "Frog on the Lilly Pad," and "Penitentiary Blues" by bluesman Lightnin’ Hopkins. And then there are Rowan’s original songs including "The Song That Made Hank Williams Dance," "A Winning Hand," "Dream of Heaven" and album closer "Freedom Trilogy." This is great music produced by a great musician with a wonderful young band including Chris Henry on mandolin, Max Wareham on banjo, Julian Pinelli on fiddle and Eric Thorin on acoustic bass. He is also joined by special guests Shawn Camp, Billy Strings, Molly Tuttle, Lindsay Lou, and Mark Howard.
