“A brilliant songwriter. One of the major talents of our time.” The Boston Globe
“The greatest interpreter and vocalist performing in the contemporary folk scene.” Sing Out Magazine
At the age of 18, Garnet Rogers was already on the road as a full-time working musician with brother Stan. Together they formed what has come to be accepted as one of the most influential duos in the history of North American folk music. Garnet acted as producer and arranger for his older brother from 1973 to 1983, when Stan died tragically in an airplane fire. Since then, Garnet has established himself as a formidable solo artist.
This tour coincides with the recent published release of Garnet’s critically acclaimed memoir, and it will draw upon it:
“Night Drive: Travels with My Brother” is a Roger’s darkly funny fly-on-the-wall account of life on the road with his brother (legendary late folksinger Stan Rogers) before there was an independent music scene.” – The Waterlo0 Region Record
“Night Drive is many splendid things. It is Garnet’s deeply affectionate tribute to his brother as well as to their parents. It offers an intimate full-bodied portrait of Stan, complete with bruises and blisters, scabs and scars.” – Reid Between The Lines
