8th Annual Rogue Fest
August 18 – 20, 2023

Blacksmith & Brewer

Rising from the ashes of a worldwide pandemic, drums & guitar two-piece Blacksmith & Brewer bring a fresh, energetic perspective to the decoration of our time.

Introduced through their late, great friend, Dan Small (Dan’s Homebrewing Supplies, Vancouver), guitarist/singer/brewer Chris Booth and drummer/blacksmith Kelly Backs come by the name Blacksmith & Brewer honestly, (their actual day jobs!) and have forged a musical bond that reaches back to the early days of punk and into the future of rock.

This outfit packs a big sonic punch into a small package, with tight hooks and leads from both instruments (and truly great vocals by Chris) that fill the aural landscape for an audience that always roars for more.
