The Scott Cook tour will start with a relaxed pizza-fest, at a great local family restaurant.
My tip is to come in early and hoe into your pizza/pasta of choice and then settle back for some music with a nice glass of local wine. :)
A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Canada's Scott Cook has managed to distil the stories collected over a decade of touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his tunes weave threads of folk, roots, blues, soul and country over spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements. His fourth release, One More Time Around, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and its opening track "Pass It Along" won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him "one of Canada's most inspiring and imaginative storytellers”. In 2017 he released his sixth album Further Down the Line, earning another Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for English Songwriter of the Year.
Cook is one of the hardest-working DIY troubadours on the road today, averaging over 160 gigs and a dozen festivals a year. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
"Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on." -David Francey, 3x Juno-winning songwriter
