10/16/21, Saturday: David Rogers with Joshua Hall (matinee)

Windham County, Vermont, is now classified as an area of ‘high public transmission.’ While Vermont’s case count, hospitalizations, and deaths are nowhere anywhere near as terrible as other places carrying the same label, the county is seeing an average of 10 cases per day. Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 1 in 24 residents have been infected. Windham County is currently at a very high risk for unvaccinated people. Our policy at the time of this publication is as follows: “All individuals are required to wear a mask (except when eating or drinking) and maintain a six-foot social distance from people not in their party at our events. Seating will be a minimum of eight feet from the stage. If you wish to make a custom seating pod for your party, arrive early and we’ll help you do it. (Our chairs are movable and configurable.) People who have already arrived and have arranged their seating will not be expected to move. GUIDANCE MAY CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE, because that’s how science works. Some shows may have tighter restrictions by the performer’s request. Any additional per-show guidance will be found on the individual show pages on this website.”

“A prominent guitarist” (NYT), “astonishingly florid” (WaPo), “modern master of the classical guitar” (20th Century Guitar). David Rogers fuses classical, jazz, and world music into virtuosic performances at a special 3:00 PM matinee on Saturday, October 16 at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls.

Prominent guitarist David Rogers to perform in Bellows Falls

David Rogers fuses classical, jazz, and world music into expressive, virtuosic performances. Deemed “a prominent guitarist” by the New York Times and praised by The Washington Post for his “astonishingly florid” improvisations, he has been called a “modern master of the classical guitar” by 20th Century Guitar. Classics Today commended his “first rate instrumental artistry,” and the Lute Society of America Quarterly called his technique “formidable.”

Featured in major musicians’ magazines including Fingerstyle Guitar in the United States and Akustic Gitarre in Germany, his performances have also been broadcast nationally on American National Public Radio and Munich-based Bayrische Rundfunk. He has given recitals and conducted master classes throughout North America, including performances and classes at the San Francisco Conservatory and Interlochen National Arts. He studied historical plucked strings at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland.

This highly pedigreed musician will perform an intimate listening event at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street, in Bellows Falls, Vermont on Saturday, October 16 at 3:00. Advance tickets by his suggestion are just $10 through the stage33live.com website. Only 40 advance tickets will be sold, and advance sales will shut down at midnight the day before the show if it hasn’t sold out. Tickets will be $15 at the door, and there will be limited standing room. COVID-19 protocol in effect which may change without notice.

Josh Hall, a classically trained guitarist and music educator whose style owes as much to Barrios and Tarréga as Mustaine and Monk will open with original material in the spirit of Dylan, Cockburn, and Taylor – songs that engage the listener to feel and think deeply, to find the reverence in everyday life, and to question the stories that define so much of the modern world.

Seating is limited. Performances are recorded and filmed. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; snacks by donation. Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in an intimate setting.
