Every George Hamilton Day (that's what the city of Hamilton calls its August Civic Holiday), a native son is chosen as the Famous Hamiltonian of the Year. In 2016, the honour went to the late, legendary singer/songwriter, Stan Rogers.
To celebrate his life, the Hamilton Spectator held two sold out fundraising shows where many artists performed their favourite Stan Rogers tunes. They were fitting tributes to the amazing legacy he left behind.
