Rogue 33 RPM | May 18 | This Day in Rogue History
Five years later, Fred Eaglesmith brought a new band to St. James for another fabulous show!
(Nice hat!!) Here's what we said about the man that day in 2012. There was a tragic footnote
to this night. After the show, Matty Simpson, the banjo player above, met up with an old friend
he hadn't seen in years. That friend was killed in a road accident a few hours later. On a
brighter note, Mike Zinger (shown on the right) came back to town after a few years away.
He'd long been a stalwart member of the bluegrass club here, and he'd even helped us out with
our bar a few times. It was a great band, with Tiff Ginn (left) and Kori Heppner - a former
CFOX traffic reporter (drums) and another Vancouverite, Justine Fischer (bass) making her
debut in the band.
