Rogers returns to Princeton Coffeehouse
PRINCETON — Canadian singer-songwriter Garnet Rogers will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Princeton Coffeehouse. In his last Coffeehouse appearance in 2004, he played to a packed house.
Rogers’ musical career began in 1973, when he started touring with his brother, Stan Rogers, popular for his songs in a traditional Canadian Maritime style. For 10 years, Garnet served as arranger and producer, and accompanied his brother on guitar, violin, and flute. Following Stan’s untimely death in 1983, Garnet continued performing, primarily as a solo artist. He has also collaborated with fellow Canadians Doug McArthur and Doug Long, and with Scottish folk musician Archie Fisher. In 2003, he released a live album recorded with Greg Brown, Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzmann. He has released 11 solo albums.
The Boston Globe has called Garnet Rogers “one of the major talents of our time.” His last live album, “Get A Witness,” was named by The Globe as one of the Top Ten Folk CD’s of 2007. In live performances, Rogers customarily plays three vintage Gibson acoustic guitars, a National guitar, a Fender Stratocaster, and occasionally a Hammertone Octave 12. His songs tend to be somewhat less traditional than those he played with his brother, drawing from folk, rock, and blues influences.
