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.
