Stan Rogers tribute

Delighted and honoured to be featured as part of the upcoming, annual Stan Rogers Tribute night in Toronto at Hugh’s Room.   I’m preparing my three songs…shall i reveal them here? No, i think i will keep it as a surprise.  Nov 15 and 16.  Get your tickets soon as it’s likely to sell out.  I grew up watching Stan on Ontario folk festival stages when i was a little girl.   His records were in constant rotation on our household record player.  Many of his songs have gone down in contemporary folk history as classics.   My own newest work (to be released in January) “To Live in the Age of Melting” is based on his song Northwest Passage.  But never have I covered a selection of his songs, straight up.   They are remarkably fine songs – nothing like learning them for performance to get inside the skin of them. This two-night special is going to feature an excellent band and a bunch of incredible singers….i hope you can join in the Stan-fest!
