As part of Court Square Theater’s effort to bring more bluegrass to the stage, Grammy-award winning musician Peter Rowan will perform at the downtown venue at 8 p.m. Feb. 21.


The bluegrass singer and songwriter has worked with musicians the likes of Bill Monroe and Jerry Garcia during his five-decade-long-and-counting career, according to a press release from Court Square Theater.


The members of Peter Rowan’s Bluegrass Band have more than 100 years of recording and performance experience combined.


About half of the tickets for the show still remain, said Lindsay Denny, marketing manager for the Arts Council of the Valley, which runs the theater.


Tickets are $25 in advance; $28 at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit valleyarts.org or call 433-9189.


“The message to get out is that he’s a phenomenal Grammy-award winner and we’ve got him here in Harrisonburg for the evening,” Denny said. “He’s got these ties with great icons of music.”
