REMEMBERING STAN ROGERS: A Fundraiser for “The Stan Rogers Festival”: February 20

SOLD OUT! Rise Again: REMEMBERING STAN ROGERS: A Fundraiser for “The Stan Rogers Festival in Canso NS: Friday, February stan-with-boats20, 2015.  $18 Adv / $20 Door. 8pm. A tribute to the music of Canadian folk legend, the late Stan Rogers.  Stan’s legacy includes Northwest Passage, and Barrett’s Privateers, a song that traveled around the world even before Stan recorded it. Stan’s music still appears at or near the top of Folk Music radio charts, every month.
Organizers of the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. “Stanfest” were forced to cancel their annual festival in July 2014 as Hurricane Arthur blew into Atlantic Canada. The decision to call it off was financially devastating to both the Festival and Canso. All proceeds from these concerts (in Hamilton Feb. 20, Kitchener Feb. 21 and London Feb. 22) will go directly to the Stan Rogers Festival.
The performers will present Stan’s music in much the style that he performed it.  Using three lead vocalists plus harmonies, guitars, fiddle, bass, and more, the band will weave two dozen Stan songs with memories of those seminal days.  The Stan Rogers tribute band is: Paul Mills: Paul produced all but one of Stan Rogers’ albums, and his alter ego Curly Boy Stubbs was guitarist on all of them.  Brad Nelson: Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, and musical director of the show. Jack Cole: Singer/instrumentalist, and the show’s producer. Anne Lederman: Renowned multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, accordion, piano) and singer. Dan Patterson: Bass, keyboard, and backing vocals.
