WUSB Sunday Street Series: Garnet Rogers

Sunday, November 5th, 3 P.M. in WUSB-FM's Sunday Street Series at The Long Island Museum, Stony Brook
Garnet Rogers has been proclaimed by Sing Out magazine as "the greatest interpreter and vocalist performing on the contemporary folk scene." He set out on the road at age eighteen as a full-time working musician with his brother Stan Rogers, the Canadian folk legend. Establishing himself as a solo artist following his brother’s tragic death, Garnet has delivered performances centered on extraordinary songs, his unsurpassed playing on a host of guitars, and his over the top humor and lightning-quick wit.
Add his name to the select list of the giants in the guitar world today and couple that with brilliant songs often centering on people who are not obvious heroes, and you have the makings of an outstanding afternoon of music. He most recent album is  Summer’s End.
In 2016, Garnet published Night Drive, his memoir of his days of touring in a band with his brother Stan in the late 1970’s.  It is an unbelievably wild book and a great read, replete with tales that couldn’t be made up. Look for Garnet to share some passages from it in his live show. (www.garnetrogers.com)
