Rowan, Peter & Don Edwards, High Lonsome Cowboy

"Western Jubilee presents: High Lonesome Cowboy by Don Edwards and Peter Rowan featuring Tony Rice and Norman Blake. Nominated for a 2002 Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album, High Lonesome Cowboy is a collaboration between legends of the acoustic music scene. America's #1 cowboy singer Don Edwards, bluegrass pioneer legend Peter Rowan, acoustic guitar icons Norman (featured on the O' Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack) and Nancy Blake and guitar hero Tony Rice. It is the newest album in Western Jubilee's Appalachia To Abilene series, anchored in the common heritage of traditional music of the Western rangers and old-timey mountain music from back East. Rowan's bluegrass tenor combined in harmony with Edward's smooth baritone and some down home guitar picking gives these great old traditional songs a new High Lonesome feeling of wide open spaces. “Listening to High Lonesome Cowboy is like sitting around a campfire in the West with some great musicians playing their favorite songs."" - Eric Fidler, Associated Press
