Thread Name: Stan Rogers Appreciated Outside Canada?
Subject: RE: Stan Rogers Appreciated Outside Canada?
Absolutely! I remember the very first time I ever heard a Stan Rogers track - played by Barry Skipsey during the Folk Show on local radio in Alice Springs around 30 years ago. Every hair stood to attention in sheer delight at his wonderfuly deep voice and melodic, sometimes hard hitting lyrics. Still listen to him now - a lot. His heroic death at 33 deprived the folk world of one of it's best male singers.
