Scott Cook and the Long Weekends

Edmonton, Alberta's own prairie balladeer Scott Cook is a tirelessly traveling songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. He brings honesty, humour, years of roads and a deep love of humanity to his songcraft and storytelling. His straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and reggae influences, whether stripped down to fingerpicked acoustic guitar, banjo, ukulele, and foot percussion, or backed by his 5-piece band The Long Weekends. He has been making a full-time living at music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US and Taiwan. Three-time Juno winner David Francey says: "Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on." Music, photos and hobo travelogue can be found on http://www.scottcook.net.
