At age 18, Garnet Rogers was on the road as a full-time working musician with brother Stan. Together they formed what has come to be accepted as one of the most influential duos in the history of North American folk music. Garnet acted as producer and arranger for his older brother from 1973 to 1983, when Stan died tragically in a plane crash. Since then, Garnet has established himself as a formidable solo artist. Garnet Rogers was a featured main stage artist at this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and has been hailed by the Boston Globe as a “charismatic performer and singer — one of the major talents of our time”.

Archie Fisher is an original inductee into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, the former host of a weekly Scottish BBC music show for 27 years, and a recipient of the MBE; a prestigious honor nominated by his peers and bestowed by Queen Elizabeth. As a guitarist, Archie – along with Martin Carthy and Davey Graham – was among the earliest steel-string players in British folk music, devising a mix of new tunings and inventive picking that has influenced generations of successors. He is also a quite gifted songwriter; “Fisher’s quietly poetic ballads…haunt like a shadowy specter” – St. Paul Pioneer Press

Archie Fisher and Garnet Rogers made one superb album together, “Off the Map”, in 1986. They toured together periodically in the late eighties in a series of legendary concerts and resumed their occasional partnership in 2009.  This current tour together is the latest manifestation of a very special musical friendship.
