Scott Cook sings sturdy, straight-talking songs that see the good in you. He has been hailed as one of the great international performers of contemporary folk music. He writes most of his own material- crafting amazingly beautiful, often simple and direct songs on almost any subject, from every day events and experiences to world history and the big questions that face us all. He plays great guitar and sings in a direct, no nonsense style that inspires and thrills new listeners and old fans alike. He also has a great sense of humour which infuses his song writing and his performance. And this year for the first time in Australia, he’s on stage with with his very tallented sweetheart, Pamela Mae who plays upright bass, banjo and accompaies him on vocals!

Born in West Virginia and raised on the Canadian prairies, Scott has toured across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, averaging over 150 shows and a dozen summer festivals a year, all the while distilling his experiences into empathetic, keenly observant verse. Scott has already completed nine tours of Australia, including talked-about performances at the Troubadour in Woy Woy as well as at the Woodford, Port Fairy, Cobargo, Candelo, Cygnet, Mullumbimby, Newstead, Kangaroo Valley, Dorrigo, Maldon, Illawarra, the National, and Yackandandah folk festivals, and beyond.

His seventh and latest recording Tangle of Souls was recorded in Australia and took top honours for the folk category in both the 2020 UK Songwriting Competition and the 2020 Great American Song Contest.

“Scott Cook’s seventh ‘love letter’ to the world is all strings and beauty, a 12-song agnostic endorsement of love over fear…  It doesn’t condemn, it summons to one fire…  Of all his records this one simply feels the best. ✭✭✭✭✭” –The Edmonton Journal

“Damn, this is a gorgeous album. Scott Cook’s voice –– vocally and lyrically –– is as clear-eyed, optimistic, and straightforward as ever…  Tangle of Souls is the medicine we could all use right now.” –Adobe and Teardrops

“He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own… He has a good eye for imagery, a gentle human touch, a wry sense of humour, a whole lot of integrity, a warm, rugged voice and a bunch of memorable lines… Truly one of Woody Guthrie’s children.” –RnR Magazine
