Sally Rogers
Sally Rogers began her career as a touring musician in 1979, after encouragement from Stan Rogers, the legendary Canadian singer-songwriter. That was followed by an invitation from Garrison Keillor to appear on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion. She appeared more than a dozen times on that show, which launched her performing career. Her travels have since taken around the world and across the United States.
Sally became the State Troubadour for Connecticut in 1997. During this time she worked with the Office of the Arts, the Last Green Valley Heritage Corridor and three schools in NE CT to write songs with students based on local history and oral histories collected by the fourth graders. A CD, “Songs of the Heritage Corridor”, was produced from that program.
Sally has released fourteen albums. Her first album, The Unclaimed Pint, has stood the test of time and continues to be a big seller. Sally reached a new audience with her first children’s recording, Peace by Peace, in the spring of 1988. Sally’s second children’s album, Piggyback Planet: Songs for a Whole Earth , featuring environmental songs for children, received the 1990 Parents’ Choice Gold Award. Her What Can One Little Person Do? won the 1993 NAIRD Award for Best Children’s Recording and another Parents’ Choice Gold Award! Her compilation of lullabies called At Quiet O’Clock has also received NAIRD’s Award for Best Children’s Recording of 1994.
Her latest albums with Claudia Schmidt, Evidence of Happiness and We Are Welcomed were released in 2014 and 2016. She is currently working on a long overdue solo recording, celebrating her forty-year career.
