ADMISSION: $37.50 Full Price / $28.50 IMAC Members

On Friday, November 5th, 2004 at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with “newgrass”/ Americana innovators PETER ROWAN, TONY RICE and SLAID CLEAVES.

Peter Rowan, Tony Rice and Slaid Cleaves are three of the most influential musicians in Americana and “newgrass” music. They have spent their respective careers creating and transforming music with their renowned innovation and individuality. They are also at ease in a broad variety of musical genres, as well as widely recognized for expanding musical boundaries in their respective solo and collaborative efforts.

Peter Rowan was one of the major cult bluegrass artists of the ‘80s, winning a devoted international fan base through his independent records and constant touring. A skilled singer/ songwriter, Rowan also yodeled and played numerous stringed instruments and the saxophone. He has performed with Jim Rooney, Bill Keith, Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys, David Grisman, Jerry Garcia, John Kahn and rock/bluegrass with Mexican Airforce.

A maverick of the flat-picked acoustic guitar, Tony Rice was the first instrumentalist to seize upon the innovations of guitarists like Clarence White and Doc Watson and propel them into new flights of rhythmic, harmonic and textural virtuosity. By doing so in the context of a bluegrass and “newgrass” band, he redefined that instrument’s role in bluegrass and raised the bar of a new generation of acoustic six-stringers.

One of the finest singer/ songwriter from Texas, Slaid Cleaves features all the strengths that have drawn him a loyal following. His songs remain literate, emotionally vivid and concisely colorful. Known for his acoustic-based songs, Slaid can also rock hard with electric-based music as well. Slaid Cleaves is a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk competition- an award previously given to such striking talents as Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen and Steve Earle.
