Whether it be football, vampires, serial killers, or tales of madness and gardening, Chris’ personal take on the songwriter’s art promises an intriguing and entertaining night out. Twice winner of the Edinburgh Folk Club’s prestigious songwriting competition, Chris offers up a fresh batch of original songs, the occasional cover and free copies of any CDs, which may be lurking at the bottom of the gig bag – all this is yours, in return for your attention and an open mind.

“Short stories in song and cameos of people, who might be someone you know, sit alongside lyrical love songs and songs dealing with contemporary issues, presented with fresh, contemporary guitar accompaniments and melodies.”

“Paul Simon meets Marillion, meets Oasis, meets Eric Bogle – hard to pin down, but polished, easy-going and melodious.”

“Immensely satisfying and compelling…a writer, who can look with confidence to the future.”

“Rogers has more than paid his dues and, in a fair world, would be on a much bigger stage, playing to a lot more people. Folk music is still marginalized, but talent like his is always welcome.”

“A great voice, an ear for an emotive melody and a sublime touch. Superb.”
“His songs are like moments in time captured on record…the musical equivalent of a welcome breath of Scottish fresh air.”
