Funny folk

Rick Scott, an award winning singer, songwriter, storyteller and actor who combines music and laughter in lively, participatory concerts for all ages, is bringing his talents to Victoria this weekend.

His gift for combining wacky humor and poignant human commentary has earned him a devoted following from four generations in nine countries.

For the past 35 years he has performed more than 1,000 shows in schools, festivals and concert halls in Canada, the U.S., Australia and Southeast Asia. He’s also the Goodwill Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation.

Scott has released 17 albums including seven children’s CDs, has been honoured with three Juno nominations and Parents’ Choice, NAPPA Gold, iParenting Media, Children’s Music Web and Canadian Folk Music Awards.

The Victoria Folk Music Society presents Rick Scott, after open stage, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25, at Norway House, 1110 Hillside Ave.

Admission is $5. Go to victoriafolkmusic.ca for more information.
