Folk Singer Elizabeth Rogers Returns to Weston on Dec. 10

Dec 6, 2017 in News

On December 10, at 4:00 PM, celebrated contemporary folk singer Elizabeth Rogers will perform in concert at Weston’s Old Parish Church. She will be accompanied by Grammy-winning cellist Eugene Friesen.

This concert is the latest presentation in the Hearts & Voices Performance Series, established in 2009 by Old Parish Church in memory of G. Frederick (Fritz) Zeller. Ms. Rogers’ H&V appearance in 2015, also with Mr. Friesen, may well be the best received and best attended performance in the eight years that H&V has been in existence. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Elizabeth Rogers voice that has been compared to that of Joan Baez. Liz started out singing opera, later branching out into jazz, a cappella and folk music. After performing with various New England groups, she moved to Scotland where she lived in a spiritual community for a time. There she began composing and performing as a solo folk artist, and has since recorded two albums to critical acclaim: One Fine Day and Breathe and Begin.

Her experiences in Scotland strongly influenced her writing, as her songs tend to contain themes of transformation and the search for home. After touring internationally and in the US for several years, Liz has moved to Vermont, and now lives in Bellows Falls. Samples of her music can be found on her website,

Typical of her critical reviews:
“Elizabeth Rogers knocks me out. She writes like a poet, plays a mean guitar, and sings like a bird. Her songs are full of a deep-rooted grace and power that’ll sneak up on you and shake you at your core. If this woman doesn’t move you, Jack, check your pulse!”

– Eric Kilburn, Grammy-nominated album producer

Revenues from the H&V performances are donated to benefit deserving area non-profit organizations. For this performance, patrons are asked to donate $10 each which will benefit three neighborhood food pantries that help combat food insecurity in Southern Vermont.
