Garnet Rogers with special guests Natalia Zukerman and Crys Matthews
Garnet Rogers has established himself as one of the major talents of our time. Hailed by the Boston Globe as a charismatic performer and singer, Garnet is a man with a powerful physical presence -- close to six and a half feet tall -- and a voice to match. 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. Cinematic in detail, his songs give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart (Kitchener Waterloo Record). An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humour and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Musician, painter and educator Natalia Zukerman grew up in New York City, studied art at Oberlin, started her mural business Off The Wall in San Francisco, began her songwriting career in Boston, and now resides, writes, plays, teaches and paints in Brooklyn, NY. Throughout her career as a touring musician, she has accompanied and opened for some of acoustic musics greats such as Janis Ian, Willy Porter, Susan Werner, Erin McKeown, Shawn Colvin, Ani DiFranco, Richard Thompson, Tom Paxton and many others.
A prolific lyricist and composer, Crys Matthews has found inspiration in her surroundings; from driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains to the compelling and heart-breaking love story of Richard and Mildred Loving. Thoughtful, realistic and emotional, Matthews songs speak to the voice of our generation and remind us why music indeed soothes the soul.
