Stan Rogers (1949-1983) was a gifted Canadian musician whose fame is known throughout the English-speaking world of folk music. He began his musical career as a teen, playing as a rock bassist, and then started writing songs about his Maritime roots, which were recorded on his first album, Fogarty s Cove. He had a talent for writing about the Canadian experience about the people who worked on farms, and in mines and fisheries across the country. He traveled frequently during the last years of his life and tragically died in an airline fire. The Canadian Conference of the Arts posthumously awarded Stan Rogers the Diplome d Honneur. The Ontario Council of Folk Festivals awarded him the Estelle Klein Lifetime Achievement Award, and SOCAN, a National Lifetime Achievement Award. Rogers music has been nominated twice for a Juno Award. The musical A Matter of Heart features Stan Rogers songs and stories, which continue to move people young and old.
