"Man, can he sing!" - Mitch Poldolak (Winnipeg Folk Festival Founder)

Nathan Rogers was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario. During his formative years he travelled with and won solo vocal awards as part of the Appleby Boys Choir. He also attended folk festivals where he had the opportunity to meet, perform with, and learn from outstanding musicians. He ventured to Winnipeg in the late 1990's to work on The World Next Door Festival with Mitch Podolak, Winnipeg Folk Festival founder, and soon found himself immersed in the city's thriving acoustic roots music scene. Nathan is a 32-year-old, extremely talented musician, endowed with an exquisite sleight of hand on the guitar and a deep baritone voice with a timbre as smooth as velvet. While he has established a respectable solo career for himself over the course of two studio albums, he has never tried to run from his family name.

Nathan's father Stan is generally regarded as one of Canada's best-loved folksingers, someone whose legacy has only grown since his untimely passing in an airplane fire in 1983. Stan was noted for his rich, baritone voice and his finely crafted, traditional-sounding songs which were frequently inspired by Canadian history and the daily lives of working people, especially those from the fishing villages of the Maritime provinces and, later, the farms of the Canadian Prairies and the Great Lakes shipping industry. His influence on Canadian folk music has been deep and lasting.

The Nathan Sings Stan - The Rogers Legacy Continues tour debuted in the Maritimes in November 2011, and continues into Western Canada this February and March. The response to the tour has been incredible with standing ovations and encores at every show. The set list includes such Stan Rogers' gems as "Northwest Passage", "Mary Ellen Carter", "Barrett's Privateers" and "Forty-five Years". Accompanying Nathan on the western leg of the tour are Trevor Mills on bass, Andrew Bryan on violin and J. D. Edwards on guitar.

"Nathan Rogers does more than play songs and tell stories for you; he provides you with an experience you'll never forget ... he has the potential to turn the folk world on its ears." - Broose Tulloch - Stylus Magazine
