Bedford Public Library

Bedford, New Hampshire

Sunday at the Library Concert Series: Mike Rogers Trio - Folk/Blues/Traditional

The concert is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited to 100 patrons. Light refreshments provided by the Friends of the Bedford Library will be served at intermission

Blind songwriter, guitarist and poet Mike Rogers presents scenes and characters in his life of seventy-five years. He has been on the road from coast to coast, New England and the Caribbean.

This show is laced with Mike's wry humor and paints portraits of people "outside the circle" in song, story- telling and poetry. Sometimes edgy, sometimes gentle, his characters are all real people from his journey through life and he places emphasis on understanding and accepting others. Mike accompanies himself on his guitar and his signature harmonica. His comfort with his audience comes from 15 years of teaching high school as well as the music business. He has been performing for over 45 years and has recorded on more than 40 albums. He has opened for Emmy Lou Harris, Tom Rush, The Eagles, James Montgomery and others. Mike and his wife, Beverly, represented Maine and Georgia at the 1999 International Very Special Arts Conference in Los Angeles and his folk group, Salt River, represented Maine at the New England Artists Conference in 2000.

The other two members of the Mike Rogers Trio are Mike's wife Beverly, who adds harmony vocals and his long-time friend and bandmate Dan MacLellan on bass and harmony vocals.
