Northwind Arts Center welcomes Canadian troubadour Scott Cook, Friday may 17 at 7:00pm.  This event is sponsored by Peninsula Hearing.  Media sponsor is KPTZ radio.

A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Canada's Scott Cook http://www.scottcook.net/ has managed to distill the stories collected over eleven years touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia and elsewhere 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" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6R0W_QbGHr8 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 his second 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 150 shows and a dozen festivals every year since 2007. 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

"As good a modern folkie as we have these days. A voice perfect for the genre. An understanding beyond the norm." -No Depression

"He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own... 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." -RnR Magazine

Tickets are $15 each from cooknorthwind.brownpapertickets.com or Northwind Arts Center or at the door.
