“An Interview with GARNET ROGERS Who Will Perform in Harrisburg, PA, APRIL 13!” »
...on Jess’s blog (link opens in a new window)
With support from Your Name In Lights Sponsors "Friends of SFMS".
Sing Out! magazine says: "Garnet Rogers may be the greatest male interpreter and vocalist performing in the contemporary folk scene... a first rate writer...musical integrity and powerful performance..."
Barely out of high school, Garnet Rogers was already on the road as a full-time working musician with his older brother Stan. Together they formed what has come to be accepted as one of the most influential acts in North American folk music.
Since then, Garnet Rogers has established himself as "One of the major talents of our time". Hailed by the Boston Globe as a "charismatic performer and singer", Garnet is a man with a powerful physical presence — close to six and a half feet tall — with a voice to match. With his "smooth, dark baritone" (Washington Post) his incredible range, and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, Garnet is widely considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the finest singers anywhere. His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful. Cinematic in detail, his songs "give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart" (Kitchener Waterloo Record). An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humour and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Garnet Rogers played an opening set for our Greg Brown show at Camp Hill United Methodist in December 2010, and we just had to invite him back to be a part of this year's Concert Series. He's phenomenal.
