North Carolina native Trip Rogers has been entertaining audiences on the east coast of the U.S. for most of his life. He has performed Celtic music for more than 15 years (including the Celtic rock band Stirling Bridge), and his musical resume includes everything from southern rock to blues. With his dynamic stage presence, he brings to life story-laden songs of Scotland, Ireland, and Appalachia. A guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and entertainer by trade and passion, Rogers seamlessly moves among many musical genres with his trademark high energy, skill, and humor. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s southern rock and Eric Clapton’s guitar-driven blues laid the foundation for Rogers’ signature guitar style. From supporting international artists to engaging school children, Rogers is at home on any stage. Over the years, he has shared the stage with artists such as Leon Russell, Molly Hatchett, Billy Joe Shaver, Hal Ketchum, and Fred Eaglesmith, and he has performed in concert halls and at fairs and festivals all along the east coast. In addition to his solo performances, he also plays with Stirling Bridge, a hard driving, bagpipe-heavy Celtic rock band, and Raglan Road, an acoustic duo that fuses Celtic and bluegrass music.
