Blaine Sprouse Joins Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band!

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGE  -  BLAINE SPROUSERelentlessly touring America and the rest of the world performing music from his two Compass Records releases - Legacy and Old School - Peter Rowan has invited Blaine Sprouse to join Chris Henry, Keith Little and Paul Knight in the new edition of the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band.

Originally from West Virginia, Blaine Sprouse took the music cue from his father, a clawhammer banjo player who taught Blaine guitar chords at age six.

Before turning eighteen, Blaine fast-tracked his professional career by joining Jimmy Martin as a Sunny Mountain Boy, touring the United States and Japan. After a move to Nashville, he left Martin to fiddle for Bill Monroe's son James in the Midnight Ramblers. Much in demand as sideman and session player, Blaine toured and recorded with a stunning array of legendary bluegrass and country
artists, among them, Charlie Louvin, Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys, and the Osborne Brothers.

After the release of three critically acclaimed solo recordings, Sprouse produced Indian Springs, a twin fiddle album with Kenny Baker on which they exhibit intuitive chemistry. 

Also a gifted mandolin and guitar player, Sprouse is at home in bluegrass, blues, swing, jazz and folk.
