Earth Opera Discography

Earth Opera were formed in Boston in 1967. Peter Rowan had moved there early in the year after playing first in Nashville and then as one of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys. He contacted David Grisman, who was at that time in San Francisco, and the two worked as a duo for a short period. Boston locals John Nagy and Bill Stevenson were then added. Later Paul Dillon joined the group. Stevenson left before the recording of the second LP. Billy Mundi and Warren Smith contributed to recordings and may have performed at times with the group. The group disbanded in 1969.
