Profound artistry and entertainment, virtuosic guitar work, often hilarious storytelling and a voice that (as one fan put it) “brings you back home to yourself”, this is a Stephen Fearing show, but above all else ... the song is king.
Stephen Fearing is a founding member of The Rogue, and we first had a hand in presenting him at The Town Pump way back in August 1986, opening for Peter Case. He later became our "house band" and a mainstay of the Canadian Roots Music scene following the release of his first full-length album (Out To Sea) in 1988. He has continued to establish himself within Canada, the US and overseas through his long relationship with Bernie Finkelstein & True North Records, his celebrated work with Colin Linden and Tom Wilson - Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, and his ongoing collaboration with Belfast singer/songwriter Andy White - Fearing & White. Over the course of 30 highly creative years, Fearing has released nine albums under his own name, seven with B&RK (a new one is due out this year), and two with F&W. He has been nominated for numerous awards and received two Juno's, a Canadian Folk Music Award and a West Coast Music Award. Fearing has logged countless miles behind the wheel, been invited onto the main stages of most Canadian roots music festivals and toured just about every region of the country: performing, teaching and producing other artists from coast to coast.
He moved back to BC this year, and now calls Victoria home. We are delighted to welcome him back to one of his first BC homes at the Rogue!
