Gig Information

Alberta, Canada's Scott Cook ( has been living out of a van or a backpack for the last twelve years, touring almost incessantly across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia and elsewhere, and distilling his experiences into straight-talking, keenly observant verse.
He brings humour, a disarming honesty, and a deep love of humanity to his songcraft and storytelling, accompanying himself with fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo. Scott has already completed eight tours of Australia, but this will be his first visit to New Zealand. He's touring in support of his sixth studio album, Further Down the Line, which garnered his second Canadian Folk Music Award nomination (English Songwriter of the Year), and comes packaged in a 132-page book containing a look back, in words and pictures, on a decade of full-time travel.
He's 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 Canadian 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... Truly one of Woody Guthrie's children. -RnR Magazine
