Rogue 33 RPM | June 2 | This Day in Rogue History
In 2013 we presented a double-bill of BC alt-folk band Fish & Bird and American fiddler / songwriter Laura Cortese and her band at St. James. The above photo came from the finale, when both bands unplugged and sang together in front of the stage.
Take a look at the June 1995 issue of the Rogue Folk Review, and you will see that we presented renowned Scottish folk singer Dick Gaughan on his first North American tour since 1983. This was actually his second Rogue gig, but that time he just played 3 Canadian dates in the Summer of 1992 - with our gig also taking place at the Wise Hall.
In June 1991 we presented the remarkable African singer songwriter Tony Bird (Malawi), with Vancouver's own African emigres Marang Talking Drums, at the Wise Hall. See the June 1991 issue for our double-feature on African music that month - scroll down to Page 4 for the details of this concert.
