Darrell Scott concert and workshop part of RiverRoots' series
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Darrell Scott will perform Friday, March 24, in Hanover College's Fitzgibbon Recital Hall, Lynn Center for Fine Arts. The concert, which begins at 8 p.m., is part of the local RiverRoots Music Series.
General admission tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show. Hanover students may purchase seats for $10 with a valid ID.
In addition to the live performance, Scott will also conduct a workshop at the College's Shoebox prior to the concert. Admission to this intimate event, which begins at 4 p.m., is free with an online workshop ticket.
Scott, a multi-instrumental performer, combines elements of country, jazz, folk, blues and gospel. He has released more than 10 albums since his debut “Aloha from Nashville” in 1997.
He earned the Independent Music Awards’ best country album award in 2011 with “A Crooked Road.” He captured the Americana Music Association’s song of the year in 2007 with “Hank Williams’ Ghost" and, in 2005, won the Independent Music Awards’ album of the year with “Theatre of the Unheard.”
Scott was invited to join rock legend Robert Plant’s revitalization of Band of Joy and played mandolin, guitar, accordion, lap-steel guitar and banjo with the group for nearly two years. The effort yielded one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top-30 albums of 2010.
In addition to Scott’s prowess as a performer and session player, his efforts as a writer and producer have earned collaborations with artists such as Zac Brown Band, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, Keb Mo, Del McCoury, Sam Bush and Dixie Chicks.
Maria Carrelli, a country-folk musician from Cincinnati, Ohio, will be the opening act.
The RiverRoots Music & Folk Arts Festival will be held May 19-20, 2017, at Bicentennial Park in Madison, Ind.
