Roy Rogers To Perform Rare Solo Acoustic Show To Be Livestreamed In Benefit For MusiCares
Roy Rogers, the eight-time GRAMMY-nominee and one of the preeminent slide guitarists in the world, will livestream a special performance on Sept. 20 to bring awareness to the crisis music venues and performance spaces face in the country. According to a recent survey, 90 percent of music venues, clubs and festivals could close due to the pandemic.
“That’s not a slide on Roy Rogers’ pinky, it’s a time machine. With it, Rogers transports you to the Mississippi Deltas past and future,” says Guitar Player. The San Francisco Chronicle also call Rogers, "one of the greatest slide guitar players anywhere."
The carefully curated performance will feature vintage guitars from his private collection, according to a statement. The guitarrist will share stories from throughout his career during the performance.
