Roy Rogers is considered one of the world’s premier slide guitarists performing today. With eight Grammy nominations as producer and performer, and two WC Handy nominations for best guitarist, he is also renowned for his work with artists like John Lee Hooker and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. Rogers has also collaborated with musicians such as Shauna Morrison, Norton Buffalo, and The Doors’ Ray Manzarek. He has recorded many albums over his career, with his latest titled Into The Wild Blue was released in 2015. As a recording artist, producer and composer, he continues to combine diverse music influences to achieve his musical vision. Always eclectic in approach, he is constantly stretching the boundaries of slide guitar.
“Many guitarists dabble in slide guitar, but the number of modern masters can probably be counted on one hand – Roy Rogers is surely one of them….” – Guitar Player
