Ben Rogers & The Blooded Yonder Live at The Northern
Here’s one you can’t miss Fernie! Ben Rogers And The Blooded Yonder will be at The Northern on Wednesday March 7th.
If you caught their set at the Wednesday Social this summer you know you’re in for a treat! $10 at the door Over the past few years Ben Rogers has firmly established himself as Western Canada’s “dark troubadour”, a classic storyteller with ”a voice like smoke-damaged velvet soaked in bootleg whiskey”. With a third album in the works, Rogers and his 4-piece band are setting a new course melding the cosmic Americana of Wilco, the folk haze of Kurt Vile, and the psychedelic fuzz of Neil Young & Crazy Horse to take their unique brand of Americana to new dimensions.
The band consists of some of Canada’s finest musicians including Matt Kelly (City and Colour) on pedal steel and keys, Erik Nielsen (Dralms, Rich Hope) on bass, John Sponarski (Aaron Pritchett) on lead guitar, and Leon Power (Frazey Ford) on drums. Their performance is engaging, energetic, and memorable. "The man’s dark charisma is something you need to experience live to fully appreciate," writes The Georgia Straight, who included him in their Best of Bands 2013 following the release his critically acclaimed debut Lost Stories: Volume I.
