|David Rogers (2017)|
|Guitarist and composer David Rogers has been called many things, all of them good. ("Almost all!", he interjects.) For example, The Washington Post called him an "astonishingly florid" improviser; and 20th Century Guitar called him a "modern master".
David fuses elements of classical music, jazz, early musicâ€”he plays a mean luteâ€”and world music into his moving performances. His music has been featured in guitar publications and on NPR, and he gives master classes throughout North America. He's also something of a guitar geek, having studied historical plucked strings in Basel, Switzerland, and at Indiana University.
David has a remarkable grasp of a wide spectrum of music, from 16th century baroque guitar music to Leonard Cohen songs and beyond. For 18 years, he was a musician with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (where he was once termed "the mad dog of the archlute"). He also taught at Southern Oregon University for over a dozen years.
When Paul McCandless says of you, as he did of David, "He plays incredibly well", then you can write your own ticket.
