About Keith Scott:
Remarkably versatile, Chicago-based blues/rock guitarist Keith Scott has been working his way methodically up through the blues’ ranks since his parents bought him his first guitar at age 14 and his young ears heard Muddy Waters in 1980.
Scott has five solo CDs to his credit, among these, “Heavy Blues,” “World Blues” and “Universal Blues.” His “Tennessee Blues,” released in Fall of 2011, has been reviewed favorably by Living Blues, the world’s premier blues magazine. He was also reunited onstage with Dawkins at the 2010 Chicago Blues Festival in front of a crowd of thousands.
Scott maintains an ambitious touring schedule that has him driving hundreds of miles a week to perform as an acoustic, solo artist throughout Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin. He frequently makes treks to play clubs in the Pacific Northwest and Montana, while spending time in the summer working festivals with his electric band.
”I guess it’s the lifestyle I enjoy,” he says of his hectic, itinerant way of living. “I get to meet new people, create a new progression in my career. I wait for the phone to ring — today it did. Whether it’s the House of Blues or a small tavern, it’s still what I love to do.”
