Thread Name: Stan Rogers Appreciated Outside Canada?
Subject: RE: Stan Rogers Appreciated Outside Canada?
I heard "Barrett's Privateers" and "Mary Ellen Carter" and "Northwest Passage" and other songs of his and was totally hooked.

One thing I love that Rogers said was that he tried to be a "contemporary singer-songwriter", but that being in a place with such history (Nova Scotia) and colorful and poignant lore, he just couldn't escape the desire to write songs rich in the imagery of his native soil and the tales of its people.

A fantastic talent who I am sure will only be more appreciated over time as more people discover his songs through covers.
