House Concert Features Scott Cook

On Sunday, April 23rd, there’s going to be a very intimate concert in our city when Scott Cook and his band, the Second Chances, take over the living room of a private home. “House concerts” have becoming increasingly popular in recent years and I can’t think of a better way to see Scott.  Born in Morgantown, WV, he grew up around the Canadian prairies. Cook flies under the radar around these parts, but he travels relentlessly entertaining happy folk audiences around the world.

I met Scott 5 years ago when a group of us aging musicians slipped him some cash to spend a day talking about songwriting and playing guitars. And I was hooked.  Cook has a rich baritone voice that never gets old. He’s a stand out acoustic guitar player, with serious chops honed from a decade of touring. And as a former philosophy student, he has an exceptional command of our language and puts it to the most poetic of uses. Oh, and he loves to laugh. If you have an appreciation for folk and roots music, then you may already have heard Scott perform.  If not, take a $10 dollar risk and reserve a spot.  You simply will not be disappointed!

Details: Doors open at 7 – Show at 8.  Admission is a $10 donation. Contact Tyler at to reserve your seat.

Here is Scott performing the title track from “Further Down The Line”.

Here’s another one – “Fellas Get Out The Way”.

Here’s a favourite of mine from 2014 – “Pass It Along” – from the album Moon Mountain Sessions.
