Roger Salloom - Saturday Night at The Buttonwood Tree

Live at The Buttonwood Tree: Roger Salloom

Film screening, Q&A with Filmmaker, Chris Sautter and concert
7:30 PM, $10
 There will be a screening of the 6 award-winning film, So Glad I Made It, the Saga of Roger Salloom, America’s Best Unknown Songwriter, then a Q&A with the filmmaker, and lastly a set of music from the songwriter, live!  A full evening of uplifting and gifted artistry. This evening has been at 37 theaters and has been a bases-loaded homerun for the audience every single time! 
A cross between blues, roots, Americana, country, and soul, Salloom always speaks from his heart. He has a self-deprecating, humorous, everyman quality, mixed with a powerful sensitivity and depth of character.

Heralded by some to be America’s Best Unknown Songwriter, praised by Rolling Stone Magazine to be “Superb”, Roger Salloom, is an “Effortlessly charming performer”.............. Portland (Maine) Phoenix
The first time the film aired on The Documentary Channel TV, was Jan 23rd 2011 in prime time, (8 and 11pm) Sunday night. Subsequent airings followed and continue...The film is scheduled for a BROADCAST ON March 18th, Sunday at 5:30pm on The Documentary Channel

“...The writing talent of Dylan or Guthrie... musical genius...hilarious and tragic, kindhearted and careless, all the complexities of a real human being.” IMDb

Roger Salloom’s voice quickly suggests a comparison to early Bob Dylan, but it’s this vet’s penchant for telling a great story that puts him in the same category. Time Out New York
