RICK SCOTT is his own unique genre: an award winning
singer, songwriter and actor, and Canada’s leading
proponent of the Appalachian dulcimer. Rooted in folk
and blues, inspired by Broadway musicals, Pete Seeger and Danny Kaye, his joyous mix of music, storytelling and humour delights audiences from four generations.
From folk clubs and festivals to schools, workshops and family matinees, Rick entertains with laughter, compassion and groove. Over 35 years he has released 18 albums and performed his lively, original music in nine countries. His gift for combining humour and poignant human commentary has earned him a devoted following of all ages.
Rick’s eight children’s recordings, produced by Valley Hennell on their own independent Jester Records label, have sold over 90,000 copies and won numerous kudos including three Juno nominations and NAPPA Gold, Parents’ Choice, Family Choice, Children’s Music Web and Western Canadian Music Awards.
Father of six and grandfather of nine, Rick is Goodwill Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation and curator of Protection Island Museum.
“His gift for enriching and healing the human spirit will not soon be forgotten.”
Rogue Folk Review
“If you who think Rick’s only a children’s performer, you’re in for a grand surprise – he’s a brilliant storyteller, actor, songwriter and master of the dulcimer whose decades of experience are woven into every minute of his performance. You’ll tap your feet, sing along, and fall off your chair laughing at this infectious talent. Don’t miss out!
