The dambuskers of appledore

Roger Colome, an international recording artist in the style of Roger whittaker,Don williams and Elvis Presley

Roger tells me his music has been inspired by artists such as Roger Whittaker, Don Williams and Elvis Presley with a repertoire based around traditional ballroom, country, rock 'n' roll and 50s and 90s music. He says: "After all these years on the road I still love my music and whether performing at venues with as few as 15 people or as many as 3,000 I still always try to create an atmosphere with audience participation. Ballads and whistling are still great loves of mine and always go down well – so much so that I'm billed at quite a few venues as the 'Roger Whittaker' of country music!"
