Rick Scott and Nico Rhodes
|January 30, 2019||20 - 14th Avenue N Cranbrook, BC V1C 6H4|
Hillbilly concertos, Appalachian grooves! Veteran folk artist Rick Scott joins forces with young keyboard ace Nico Rhodes for an inter-generational smorgasbord of roots, blues and humour. What do you get when you combine an infamous dulcimer player with a rising jazz star, old school groove with Broadway chops? Rick and Nico blur all boundaries: in a word, they cook! ROOTS & GROOVES is a lively alchemy of songs, stories and musical mastery garnished with mischief and joie de vivre.
In 2017 veteran folk artist Rick Scott joined forces with young keyboard ace Nico Rhodes for an inter-generational smorgasbord of roots, blues and humour. In their first year as a duo they played 30 concerts to ovations around BC and released a ROOTS & GROOVES CD recorded live from the floor in a single day.
“Incredible musicians, wonderful entertainers. I loved this show and so did my 91-year old mother!”
“Individually Rick Scott and Nico Rhodes are highly entertaining, gifted musicians. Together they are a force of nature. They blew the house away. ROOTS & GROOVES is a musical gift for any audience: talent, chemistry, stories, songs and humour resulting in two standing ovations”. Whistler Arts
“Rick and Nico reinvent ten. The energy they pour into their performance could light up a city. So much talent, so much joy, so much love. What a terrific experience.” Duncan Showroom
“Nico Rhodes is astonishing, you have to hear and see him caress, cajole and at times almost punish the piano. Breathtakingly fresh sounds and style radiate from this young musician.” *
