Benefit Concert with Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen
This exciting duo, whose harmonies will send shivers up your spine, has racked up a string of successes in songwriting, studio recording, and crowd-pleasing displays of instrumental and vocal virtuosity. They have appeared on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" public radio show, and have toured from coast to coast. Their first album together, Satisfied Customers, on the Flying Fish label, gives testimony to their wide-ranging abilities.

Sally Rogers has achieved national recognition as a solo performer. Sally's second album was voted "Best Folk Album of the Year" by the National Association of Independent Record Distributors. Pete Seeger said, "Sally has a beautiful voice and has written many extraordinarily good songs that are going to reach out and touch large numbers of people. They sure are great songs!" Rogers is currently serving as Connecticut's official State Troubadour, and also as a Master Teaching Artist for the Connecticut Commission on the Arts.

Howie Bursen is known for his warm baritone voice, devilish sense of humor, inventive guitar arrangements, and red-hot banjo wizardry. Chicago Magazine said, "stunning guitar arrangements...easily one of the finest banjo players ever heard." His song, "Small Business Blues", was recently recorded by Ronnie Gilbert, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Holly Near on their album, Harp. Pete also included it in his book, Carry it On, published by Simon and Schuster.

Rogers and Bursen met, appropriately enough at a Greenwich Village coffeehouse in 1981, and ever since have been building a national reputation at festivals and concert halls throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. They were married in 1982 and now make their home on the shores of a one-time cranberry bog in Eastern Connecticut.

Proceeds from this concert will benefit the First Parish of Watertown's Helen Robinson Wright Fund, which offers assistance to individuals in need.
