This September, Ontario folk warbler Allison Brown and Alberta’s rambling songman Scott Cook take to the stage for three double bill concerts in London (with special guests Simple Joy), Toronto and Windsor.! September in Southern Ontario marks Scott and Allison’s first shared billing; taking to the stage at the London Music Club, Mitzi’s Sister and at Phog! Allison brings along some special accompanist friends to spice up the September nights with a harvest of fiddles, mandolins, bass and harmonies.
Prairie balladeer Scott Cook is an Edmonton-based, world-traveling songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. Scott Cook sings real, honest acoustic roots music with a barefoot feel. He performs alone—accompanying himself with guitar, banjo, ukulele, harmonica, and foot percussion—or with his band, The Long Weekends. Folk, roots, country, blues, and reggae weave around stories that shine a light on the human heart, evoking equal parts laughter, tears and wonderment. Cook has traveled widely, and brings a wealth of life experience to his songcraft and storytelling. He has made his full-time living playing music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US, and Taiwan.
"Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye and is exactly the kind of act you'd be happy to stumble down the hill or through the birches and hear at a music festival...warm like a campfire, familiar like the lake down the road... deepthinking, introspective stuff" -Fish Griwkowsky, The Edmonton Sun
“He is, without question, the most endearing of folk hippies in this uptight town—a reggae country bluesman whom Willie Nelson would get along with better than pretty much any of us, which means everything. The music on his new one is pretty, thoughtful, & hopeful —lustful for life and eternally grateful.” -SEE Magazine, Edmonton
