American-born Rick Scott is an award-winning singer, songwriter and storyteller who has been an integral part of the Canadian cultural scene since he relocated here way back in 1972. Most often found with an Appalachian mountain dulcimer in his hands, Rick started out as one-third of those “infamous folkies” the fabled Pied Pumkin; eventually he discovered his primary calling as an enchantingly whimsical – and much-loved – children’s entertainer.
The other half of tonight’s remarkable duo is Nico Rhodes, a classical piano prodigy who spent his early years touring with his mom, the celebrated chanteuse, Joëlle Rabu. Destined to become a powerful force in the worlds of both musical theatre and jazz, Nico is a gifted arranger, a brilliant accompanist, and an astonishing performer in his own right as was experienced by our Civic Centre audience a couple of January’s ago performing with his mom Joëlle.
