This event has already taken place.
Canadian master guitarist Don Ross has been coming to The Rogue for over 20 years now, and each show is a new and rip-roaring adventure into his amazing world of 6 and sometimes 7 strings! his guitar wizardry has earned him two US National Finger-style Guitar Championships and his CDs and instructional DVDs are best-sellers around the world. But there's a lot more to Don than his stunning guitar work: he is a prolific composer of intricate - and sometimes blisteringly hot tunes in the style he christened "heavy wood," and he is also a fine singer, equally at home on his own compositions or on covers of songs by the likes of Leo Kottke and Bruce Cockburn. His latest CD, Upright & locked Position, has just come out on Candyrat Records. He is touring once again with his wife Brooke Miller, herself a wonderful guitarist, composer and singer. She has just released a new collection of her songs, recorded in Germany's Stockfish Studios, with Don adding some keyboard and electric guitar, but it's mostly Brooke at her intimate best, singing and playing acoustic guitar, and painting landscapes of her own design. The new CD is called Familiar. Come and get familiar with Brooke and Don, back at The Rogue at St, James Hall (heavy wood in a heavy wooden hall!)
