About Scott Cook:
In 2007, Albertan songwriter Scott Cook quit his job teaching kindergarten in Taiwan and moved into a minivan. He’s made his living as a troubadour ever since, touring almost incessantly across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, averaging 150 shows and a dozen summer festivals a year, and releasing seven albums of plainspoken, keenly observant verse along the way. His latest collection Tangle of Souls comes packaged in a cloth-bound, 240-page hardcover book of road stories and ruminations, equal parts introspection and insurrection. The album spent two weeks at #1 on Alberta's province-wide community radio network CKUA, and earned Scott his third Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, for English Songwriter of the Year. Its second single "Say Can You See" was the second most-played song of 2020 on Folk Alliance International's folk radio charts, and took top honours for the folk category in both the 2020 UK Songwriting Competition and the 2020 Great American Song Contest. In 2022 he's touring the album around North America with his sweetheart Pamela Mae on upright bass, banjo and vocals, believing more than ever that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
"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
About Soil N Grass:
Saskatchewan - the wind makes the vast span of native grasses into a dancing sea of greens, yellows and browns. Uncountable buffalo travel a prairie circuit every year, renewing the soil and feeding the land. The people thrive. That picture has changed, but for thousands of years before SK was the land of pumpjacks and potash, it was the land of soil and grass. This bluegrass band from Treaty 4, comprised of Quinn Legare (banjo), Karley Parovsky (fiddle) and Nick Day (guitar), is on a North Western journey to bring music, land, and community into connection, digging into our roots – but only to the depth of the plow.
