Singer-songwriter Nathan Rogers, son of Stan Rogers, returns to the Maritimes with his trio to perform shows from Oct. 5 to 19. He'll be performing at Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River on Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Leonard and Adam Cohen, Bob and Jacob Dylan and Stan and Nathan Rogers – some say genes, while others claim the sons of these songwriters went out and earned it. Whatever the case may be, Nathan Rogers has managed to carve out his own cutting edge niche in today’s music world while at the same time keeping a foot planted in the tradition so well defined by his father Stan.
Rogers has two solo albums to his credit, including “The Gauntlet” (Borealis Records) and “True Stories.” He has increasingly been turning heads with his own material. Singing, chanting, playing the guitar and stomping, he fills any stage with “magnificent powerfully clear lyrics and arrangements,” noted music reviewers. Described as ‘intelligent and witty’, Rogers will “move men and women to tears with his sound and conviction.” In doing so he is gaining new fans every day.
Along with his original material, he has always found room during his performances to include one or two of his father’s songs. From these performances sprung the idea to do a one-time tour performing Stan’s repertoire. There is no one better to bring this music to audiences with new life and voice than Stan’s son, Nathan.
