A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Canada's Scott Cook has distilled the stories from a decade of near-incessant touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. Scott has already completed four tours of Australia, including talked-about performances at Woodford, Cobargo, Candelo, Newstead, Illawarra, and Yackandandah folk festivals, and is returning with his sixth album, Further Down the Line. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world. "There's nothing flash about Canada's Cook. He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own... He has a good eye for imagery, a gentle human touch, a wry sense of humour, a whole lot of integrity, a warm, rugged voice and a bunch of memorable lines... Truly one of Woody Guthrie's children." -David Burke, R2 Magazine Folk / Roots
The Festival schedule for Scott Cook will be available soon.
