john lowell elk river arts and lecturesJohn Lowell has been an integral part of the Americana and bluegrass music scene in the Rocky Mountain West for more than 35 years. During that time, he’s fronted three of the region’s finest bands – Wheel Hoss, Kane’s River and The Growling Old Men – and has set the standard for rock-solid guitar playing and clear singing. Lowell is a prolific songwriter, and his work has been recorded by many other artists. In demand as a teacher of guitar, voice and songwriting, he teaches and tours in the United States, Canada, Europe and the UK.  Minor 7th Magazine says, “Lowell flat-picks and sings with a panache and musicality that transcends genres.” Lowell has performed on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” and has been featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.

Lowell is well-versed in the roots of music, as well as in the logistics of touring, recording, shopping songs to other artists, and how students who are interested in the music industry shouldn’t give up their day jobs.
