Canadian Folk Legends Together -- Live On Stage

About this Event

CONNIE KALDOR

She has traveled prairie backroads to visit modest community centres and sold out concert halls in major cities. From Beijing to New Delhi to Saskatoon to Washington, Connie has triumphed with her mix of song and humour honed in pacing and tone by the many years she spent performing.

Her song Wood River was chosen by Canadian Geographic as one of Canada’s finest songs. She is the only songwriter to win the Western Literary Association award of merit. She was made a member of the order of Canada, the highest civilian award in her country. She is moving, memorable and irreverent as heck.

GARNET ROGERS

Born in Hamilton, Ontario to parents of Nova Scotian descent, Garnet Rogers spent many hours in front of the old floor model radio listening to Grand Ol' Opry broadcasts and harmonizing with his brother, the late folk legend Stan Rogers.

At 18, Garnet was 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 a plane crash.

Since then, Garnet has courageously established himself as a formidable solo artist. Hailed by the Boston Globe as a "...charismatic performer and singer — one of the major talents of our time.” With his "smooth, dark baritone" (Washington Post) his incredible range and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, Garnet is widely considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the finest singers anywhere. His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful
