It may seem odd for Nathan Bowles to sit on a Los Angeles rooftop surrounded by cacti playing “Burnt Ends Rag” on a banjo. But, doggone-it, the whole thing just works. That’s because the new vanguard of bluegrass/old-time/string band music is populated with artists unafraid to try new things in new places in order to engage new listeners. And, for Bowles, it’s working very well.
