The Stan Rogers Blog

Mom Rogers


I was born and raised in B.C. and went to Newfoundland to teach music, taking my family with me. While there I learned most of what I know about Stan Rogers and had decided I would like to present some of the tunes to elementary and secondary kids. I needed to arrange them for recorders and other instruments and called Stan’s Mom for permission. She was so neat. She gave permission and started writing about Stan and how he had felt about this, and her family and how Garnet was having a writing block, etc. It was like talking to a close friend.
