For anyone interested, Canada Post have a very attractive new stamp featuring Stan Rogers. Here's what they have to say about it.

Stan Rogers was one of Canada’s greatest and most beloved singer-songwriters. Celebrate the life and music of this legendary folk artist with this booklet of 10 PermanentTM domestic rate stamps.
The stamp features an illustration by Peter Strain. The foreground is based on a photograph by Paul Coates that was taken at the Calgary Folk Festival in the early 1980s. The background is based on a photograph by Darren Calabrese of Fogarty’s Cove, the Nova Scotia namesake of Rogers’ first album. The hand-lettered wording at the top of the stamp was inspired by the cover of Rogers’ album Between the Breaks…Live!
Stanley Allison Rogers was born on November 29, 1949, in Hamilton, Ontario. He taught himself to play the guitar at the age of five and began performing in coffee houses at the age of 14. Rogers was known for his finely crafted songs and lively, engaging performances that helped popularize Celtic-style music. His rich baritone voice and 6’4” frame added to his magnetic stage presence.
Rogers spent many summers in the seaside community of Canso, Nova Scotia, where his mother grew up. This inspired and informed his love of maritime life and music. The Stan Rogers Folk Festival (aka Stanfest) was established in Canso in 1997 to honour and celebrate the man and his music. Rogers released four albums over the course of his career – the last of which included the critically acclaimed title track “Northwest Passage”, which many consider Canada’s second national anthem. Another seven albums have been released since his life was cut tragically short in an airplane fire in 1983.
Although it has been nearly 40 years since his passing, his music lives on in the hearts and minds of Canadians and continues to inspire new generations of fans and musicians from around the world.

More info here. They also issued a Leonard Cohen stamp recently.

Had a letter a month or so ago, from my friend, a huge Stan Rogers fan, in Ottawa ON. It had not only the Stan Rogers stamp, but also the Bluenose stamp. Win/win! ;-)

Ireland have been putting traditional music on their stamps for over 40 years. There was a set featuring Altan, the Chieftains, The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and the Dubliners 15 years ago.
When can we expect a Martin Carthy or Dick Gaughan stamp in the UK ?

I am in California. How can I order these stamps?
Do they sell them 10 stamps to a booklet or only 20 stamps?

I don't buy anything online so wondering how I could purchase them exactly and the cost (in USA currancy?).

I don't have any friends in Canada or anywhere near Canada so just wondering the best way I could send away for them?
Thank you.

If you don't buy on line, it would be tricky. All post offices in Canada will probably have them & the link I posted originally will get you to the Canada Post website, but on line purchase is the only way I see to do it.

I live in Stratford, Ontario, Lin.

Here's a link to the Canada Post site that shows first-day covers and other stamp stuff as well as the stamps themselves.

If you're determined not to buy them yourself on line, PM me and I'll see what I can do.
