The Brewery Arts Center and X-Ville South present the folk legend Peter Rowan with Jody Stecher in Carson City at 7:30 p.m. today. The show will open with local favorite guitarist Beans Sousa.

Rowan used to sing for the all-star Bluegrass band Old and in the Way, as well as the folk-rock outfit Sea Train. Today Rowan is dipping into stripped-down country-folk songs composed of just his voice, guitar and harmonica.

Rowan is joined by two-time Grammy nominated Jody Stecher, a multi-instrumentalist playing on a multitude of stringed instruments – including fiddle, guitar, mandolin and banjo.

Opening the show is Beans Sousa. Throughout the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, Sousa spent his 30-year career performing, recording, traveling the country and playing music with influential musicians.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $28 all seating, with $3 off BAC members, seniors and students. Call 883-1976.
