Peter Rowan talks about playing with Jerry Garcia in Old and in the Way

Peter Rowan talks about playing with Jerry Garcia in Old and in the Way

Every now and then you just need to pinch yourself. I’m with Peter Rowan, the legendary bluegrass musician, and he’s telling me a story about Jerry Garcia. We’re on the front porch of Lama Tsultrim Allione’s house, the founder of Tara Mandala Buddhist Retreat Center just outside of Pagosa Springs, Colo., where Rowan is holding a songwriter’s workshop, sharing intimate conversations and performing to raise funds for Tara Mandala. While the performance has brought in a substantial crowd, the classes for the teachings are small and intimate. I feel lucky to be here.

Rowan is asleep when I arrive at our scheduled time, so I wait, not long, for him to go inside and presumably splash water on his face. He returns seemingly unconcerned that his appearance isn’t exactly stage ready. He has a gray stubble covering his chin and his clothes are rumpled. But he’s ready and the camera rolls. Though he looks tired, he is alert and thoughtful. At the end of the interview I ask him, “Can you tell me a Jerry Garcia story?"

Watch the video below to see what he had to say.
