Hailed by the Boston Globe as a “charismatic performer and singer”, Garnet has a powerful physical presence – close to six and a half feet tall – with a voice to match. With his “smooth, dark baritone” (Washington Post), his incredible range, and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing, Garnet is widely considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the finest singers anywhere.
His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful. Cinematic in detail, his songs “give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart” (Kitchener Waterloo Record). An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humor and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Garnet is the brother of the late Stan Rogers, the legendary Canadian songwriter and performer. While his brother’s style of writing was more traditional and often based on Canadian Maritime styles, Garnet’s style is more modern, utilizing influences from blues, rock, country/bluegrass, and classical.
Concert starts at 7:30PM, preceded by a sing-a-long with the Walkabout Clearwater Chorus at 6:45PM. Doors open at 6:30PM.
