For the past couple years, when not touring the world, Peter Rowan could be found on the beaches and in the clubs of Hawaii, absorbing and adapting the sounds that filled the radio waves in the days of Jimmie Rodgers and Maybelle Carter to a brand-new set of his own songs. My Aloha! demonstrates how Hawaiian steel guitar and ukulele were an influence on foundational bluegrass, folk, and country artists like Bill Monroe, even if the connection is not immediately obvious. My Aloha! finds Peter returning to these Hawaiian roots, and bringing them into the present as only he can.
