Virtuoso slide guitarist and Grammy winner Roy Rogers and his trio, the Delta Rhythm Kings, bring their unique sound to The Old Steeple for a night of high-energy blues on Saturday, March 25.
Rogers is one of the world’s premier slide guitarists and a master of the Mississippi Delta Blues. In addition to racking up accolades for his electrifying live performances, Rogers has also gained fame as a record producer who has worked for some of the biggest names in the industry, including John Lee Hooker, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Bonnie Raitt, and Ray Manzarek, the late keyboardist for The Doors. Rogers took home two Grammy Awards for his production work with Hooker, and has received eight Grammy nominations both as a producer and performer.
Rolling Stone calls Roy Rogers “an exceptionally articulate slide guitarist, whether he’s scorching Robert Johnson’s ‘Ramblin’ Blues’ or taking a lovely, lyrical journey ... or rockin’ it out. One of the rare guitar heroes who values feeling over flash.”
Ferndale Music Company and The Old Steeple are located at 246 Berding Street (next to the cemetery) and are open from noon to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
