After listening to this again today I was reminded of how great one of my favorite artists of all time, Peter Rowan, is. My Aloha from Peter Rowan has some great dobro, lap steel and Weisenborn on it as well as his great vocals. There are some true Hawiaan roots on this record, and it is nice to have them brought into the present day as Peter has done here. This was recorded in Honolulu, and accompanied by Douglas Po’oloa Toletino, Jeff Au Hoy, Kilin Reece, and Uncle Mike Souza. I got to see Peter perform several, of these tunes at the Suwannee Roots Revival Festival in Florida several years ago but I do not recall the dobro player he had with him. If you haven’t heard this record yet do yourselves a favor and give it a listen.

I would think the dobro player with Pete at Suwanee several years ago was  Mike Witcher. 

I have seen a couple videos with Mike in the band at that festival. 

Here is the band at the Suwanee Spring Festival in March 2017.

Rowan lives in the same general neck of the woods as badger and I. I have seen Pete play live many times, but the only dobro players I have ever witnessed on stage with him are Jerry Douglas and Mike Witcher.

You win the big prize! Mike it was. As soon as I saw that picture it dawned on me. That was a great show indeed.

Thanks, Phil

I have to give back a portion of the prize - it hit me later that I misspelled Suwannee. surprise

Yeah, but you spelled Witcher correctly. And that's all that matters here.
