Candlelight concert

Stone Church Arts hosts singer-songwriter Elizabeth Rogers

BELLOWS FALLS — Elizabeth Rogers, singer-songwriter, was born and raised in New York City. She started singing at the age of nine with the New York City Opera and the Metropolitan Opera companies. She has toured internationally as a classical and jazz singer.

In 2000, she moved to the north of Scotland, where she concentrated her efforts as a folk-singer/songwriter. She currently lives in Vermont and will be performing a “Stone Church by Candlelight” concert at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 6, at Immanuel Episcopal Church, 20 Church St.

“I started writing music in 2000, when I moved to an intentional community in Scotland called Findhorn,” she wrote. “I spent most of that decade there and for the last four years of my stay I managed a theater while trying to fit singing in around the edges."

“In 2009, I decided to return to my homeland of the United States, and pour a year of my life into making music while touring around the western U.S. and Japan. That year has now come and gone and went better than I'd hoped, so I'm just continuing to roll with it while I'm still breathing. In 2010, I released my second album, Breathe & Begin.”

Grammy-nominated producer Erik Kilburn says Elizabeth Rogers “writes like a poet, plays a mean guitar, and sings like a bird. Her songs are full of a deep-rooted grace and power that'll sneak up on you and shake you at your core. If this woman doesn't move you, Jack, check your pulse!”
