Thread Name: Stan Rogers Appreciated Outside Canada?
Subject: RE: Stan Rogers Appreciated Outside Canada?
Jim Mageean and Johnny Collins helped to popularise Stan's songs in the UK, and they and several other Brits have recorded some of them. I went to a presentation given by John Prentice at Redditch festival on Stan's songs about 20 years ago, after John had recorded Last Watch on the Midland. Plus Nathan Rogers and Dan McKinnon have toured over here and included Stan's songs in their sets. Most Sidmouth Middle Bar song sessions include a Stan Rogers song!
