Semi-finalist Benjamin Rogers

Brant’s own Fiddler / guitarist / singer / songwriter Benjamin Rogers has made it to the semi-finals in this years International Songwriting Competition with three (3!) of his songs!

from hamiltonblueslovers:

We all know there’s world-class music in our own backyard but now the world is aware too thanks to the prestigious International Songwriting Competition.  After thousands of submissions, many deserving local musicians were chosen as semi-finalists

Brantford’s Benjamin Rogers was listed for three tracks: Pendulum (Instrumental), Move Ben Move (Teen) and Wayfarer (Teen).

Just having the chance to be judged by industry greats such as Pat Metheny, Sarah McLachlan, John Hiatt, Robben Ford, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jon Secada, Bela Fleck, James Cotton and many more (click here for a full list of list years judges) is amazing!

We wish Benjamin Rogers the best of luck!  Let him know he has your support on facebook.
