Buddhist Bluegrass: Peter Rowan shares his “Dharma Blues”

Peter-Rowan-300x300This month sees the release of Dharma Blues, the newest album from Bluegrass star and Buddhist Peter Rowan. His twentieth LP credited as a solo artist, it was recorded in California and New Orleans, and contains bluegrass and country tunes with references to Poe’s “The Raven” and, of course, Buddhadharma, in the album’s Eastern-tinged title track and the droning “Vulture Peak,” which includes Rowan’s vocal rendition of the Heart Sutra.

“The doubts and resolutions of the spiritual journey are what drive Dharma Blues,” Rowan says about his new LP. “May this music bring joy to all.” For more, visit Rowan online.
