Following the wild success of its first livestream with Mari Black on March 13, 2020, the Society has worked to to keep the music playing, lift spirits, and make sure the artists in our extended Folk Family can continue to live day to day. We all know music is a universal language and we will be utilizing it as we present artists local, regional, and international - old favorites and new discoveries - to a digital audience of music lovers from the comfort of their own homes! PFS is excited to bring you one the Next Gen Folk artists from the Philadelphia Folk Festival proving why we have long said he's an artist to watch! With their tours cancelled and tens of thousands of dollars lost, this is the time to support the musicians we love and #KeepTheMusicPlaying About Benjamin Dakota Rogers: Benjamin Dakota Rogers makes his highly anticipated return to the folk world with his brand new single, Better by Now, stripping the genre down to its core and emotionally charging it with the raw human experience that can only be delivered from the honesty and grit of a farm boy’s hands. Hailing from the countryside of rural Ontario, Benjamin funnels his penchant for starry nights and nostalgia into his stylized folk sound, reaching far beyond to include influences of roots, blues and country music. Benjamin found a passion and purpose in folk music after inheriting his great-grandfather’s violin at the tender age of seven. From budding musician to awe-inspiring performer, his love of creating meaningful music has taken the reins and garnered much attention from folk artists and enthusiasts alike. “Rogers’ unique voice, thought-provoking lyrics, energetic performances and dynamic fiddle techniques leave this up-and-coming musician in a class of his own.” – InSpades Magazine. With the release of his new single, this singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist folk-phenom proves he’s at the top of his game in every way imaginable, grasping for the stars that light up his quaint hometown of Scotland, ON. As he prepares for the release of his most ambitious project to date, Benjamin Dakota Rogers continues to redefine the genre with an infinite sound evolution that promises to deepen the path he’s already carved for himself for years to come.
