Rick Scott

Rick Scott

Rick Scott is his own unique genre: an award winning singer, songwriter and actor, and Canada’s leading proponent of the Appalachian dulcimer. Over 45 years he has released 19 albums and performed his lively, original blend of folk and blues in eleven  countries. From folk clubs and festivals to school and symphonies, his gift for combining music, humour and poignant human commentary has earned him a devoted following from four generations.

He’s Goodwill Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation and curator of the Protection Island Museum. In 2018 Rick was honoured with the City of Nanaimo Excellence in Culture Award and in July 2019 he was inducted into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, with a star on the StarWalk on Granville Street where he began his a career as a busker five decades ago.

“Rick’s gift for enriching and healing the human spirit will not soon be forgotten.”
