Kendall Rogers has been playing traditional dance tunes since he started picking them out on the piano at about age 4 or 5. He has been performing on piano in public at American folk dance events since about age 15, adding other related dance events over the next 25 years. Steeped in the rich Appalachian folk heritage of his native Kentucky, alongside the Celtic/American/Canadian/British/Danish musical traditions of his family’s dance customs, Kendall’s playing has also been shaped by classical and jazz training … plus a healthy disregard for the rules. So long as there’s life and movement in the music, Kendall is happy to play, especially for dancers! Kendall currently resides in Houston, where he primarily plays with traditional Irish band, The Jig is Up!
