WAM May 5-6 Nathan Rogers
Love him or loathe him, Stan Rogers is remembered by most of us of a certain age. Rogers worked hard - as a writer, performer and tireless self-promoter - to make a career in the folk music business in Canada. Hi efforts paid off in that he is considered by some to be an icon.
Stan’s brother Garnet has made a career of stoking the Stan flame, touring incessantly with Stan’s material.
And now Stan’s son Nathan, who has carved out an increasingly well-respected career of his own, is taking his father’s songs on the road as the Rogers Legacy Continues.
Nathan is coming to Newfoundland and Labrador for a ten-stop tour. I contacted him at his home … at the kitchen sink … and began by asking him that, given as he has a career as a singer and songwriter in his own right, why he would take his dad’s songs on tour.
