Scott Cook is a true Canadian troubadour, relentlessly touring North America, Asia and Europe for most of the last six years. He’s released three albums independently since 2007, earning the praise of his peers and becoming a fixture on the Canadian festival scene. His latest release, 2011’s Moonlit Rambles, is a collection of road stories, existential musings, and social commentary which Edmonton reviewer Fish Griwkowsky likened to “a conversational bottle of Jack passed around a dawn fire, everything burning just right.” Scott’s straight-talking tunes infiltrate the hearts of all who hear him, weaving together folk, roots, blues, soul and country influences over spacious fingerpicked arrangements on guitar, banjo and ukulele.
