"If you think of Rick as a children's performer, you're in for a grand surprise! He's a brilliant storyteller, actor, impressionist, songwriter and master of the Appalachian dulcimer whose decades of experience are woven into every minute of his performance. First time we've ever had a standing ovation at one of our concerts.” Home Routes Powell River 2014

Rick Scott is his own genre. An award winning singer-songwriter, he combines music, laughter and poignant human commentary in lively concerts for all ages. He’s performed in nine countries, released 18 recordings and appeared at festivals, theatres and folk clubs across Canada and around the world. He’s Goodwill Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation and curator of the Protection Island Museum.

Rick Solo: Accompanying himself on dulcimers, Rick performs concerts, inspirational keynotes and song writing workshops.

Rick Scott and Nico Rhodes ROOTS & GROOVES: Rick and young keyboard maverick combine forces for a dynamic buffet of hillbilly concerts, Appalachian  groove and fearless folk funk (see separate listing).

Rick also performs musical readings and keynotes with Valley Hennell based on ‘Snapshot of A Soul Place in the land of special needs’, an illustrated memoir by Kari Burk based on the life of their 25 year old granddaughter with Down Syndrome, winner of 2015 Family Choice, NAPPA and Academics' Choice Awards.

In 2014 Rick premiered an original orchestral program entitled ‘My Symphony’ with the Vancouver Island Symphony, featuring 44 musicians and 45 voice choir conducted by Pierre Simard, it will be reprised at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo each February for four years.

In 2013 Rick released two retrospective CDs: ‘Cahoots’ the late great keyboardist Robbie King and bagpipe dervishes Rare Air, and a digital version of his 1985 folk rock album, ‘You Better Dancing.’

Rick pioneered Canadian roots music in the '70s with Joe Mock and Shari Ulrich in Pied Pumkin and Pied Pear who reunited in 1998 and continue to tour. Their 2007 CD Pumkids won a Canadian Folk Music Award. In 2012 they had the honour of opening the 35th Anniversary Vancouver Folk Festival.
