Kendall Rogers

Kendall Rogers (piano, accordion, guitar, bodhran) has been playing traditional dance tunes since he started picking them out on the piano at about age 4 or 5. He has been performing on piano in public at American folk dance events since about age 15, adding other related dance events over the next *mumbled number* years. Steeped in the rich Appalachian folk heritage of his native Kentucky, alongside the Celtic/American/Canadian/British/Danish musical traditions of his family’s dance customs, Kendall’s playing has also been shaped by classical and jazz training … plus a healthy disregard for the rules. As he’s living in south Louisiana these days, his music is learning more new lessons, but so long as there’s life and movement in the music, then laissez les bon temps rouler!
