Concert at Bass Hall, Peterborough Historical Society, Grove St. Peterborough
Garnet Rogers is widely considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the finest singers in folksong tradition.
His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive and deeply purposeful. An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not heroes of major events. Rather, his songs focus on small, everday victories. His over-the-top humor and lightning-quick wit move his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Among his many songs, The Last One recalls the days and nights we all spent at the Folkway and those dear souls we lost too soon.
