For "really good grinds" at fair prices, this place was hard to beat when it was still open!

Perhaps my favorite picture of the evening! Great backlighting!
Mike & Roz, cool folks, they!
Mr. Peter Rowan. Peter's professional music career dates back to 1965, including a history with Bill Monroe & The Bluegrass Boys, Earth Opera, SeaTrain, Old & In The Way and a whole lot more.
Peter's fiddle playin' friend, and recently arrived Maui resident - name momentarily forgotten...
"One of these days Alice, straight to the Moon!"

Peter and your photographer, photo by Kolleen.
I roadied for SeaTrain when Peter was with them. After he left that band, in Oct of '72, I drove a Ryder truck with his household belongings across country, from Marblehead, Mass. to Stinson Beach, Calif.
This was the first time that we'd seen each other since the first Old & InThe Way album was recorded, at the Boarding House club in San Francisco, April of '73
Great seeing you again, Peter! Come back to Maui again...soon!
Pau...the end! Mahalo for looking! Aloha!
