About Scott Cook:
Scott Cook is a tirelessly traveling DIY songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and country with spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements.

Cook has been making a full-time living at music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia and Australia, and is currently on tour in support of his fourth release, One More Time Around.  Its opening track “Pass It Along” won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him “one of Canada’s most inspiring and imaginative storytellers”.

Fellow Canadian songwriter and three-time Juno winner David Francey sums it up: “Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on.”

About Mo’ Kauffey:
From the moment you see Mo’ Kauffey and his old Supratone arch-top guitar you get the idea you are in for something unique. Mo’ is as equally adept at interpreting American roots music in a personable, acoustic blues format as he is at re-interpreting more contemporary folk, rock, country, and pop in his own inimitable style. He’s also not afraid to share some of his own tunes along the way.

Mo’ has been performing his unique brand of roots music for more than 30 years and has opened for and/or shared the stage with artists like John Mayall, The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Bill Kirchen, Roy Book Binder, Rock Bottom, Colin Linden, Manitoba Hal, Ken Hamm, Honeyboy Edwards, Michael Pickett, and Mel Brown.

Mo’ has released six independent albums since 2000 and is currently working on a new live album.
