Don Rogers has deep roots in Kentucky old time music. His grandfather and great uncles recorded on the Gennet label in the 1930s as the Kentucky String Ticklers. His father, Donnie, plays guitar with the Kentucky Clodhoppers. Don is a versatile multi-instrumentalist and singer who performs at regional festivals with Kentucky Wild Horse, with young traditional musician Jeri Katherine Howell, and with the Green Genes rock band. Don is also a songwriter whose work can be heard on Spirits of the Lonesome Hills and Winetown. Don’s song “I’m a Kentuckian” is fast becoming a new state anthem.
