BIOGRAPHY

With Celtic, colonial, medieval, rock, and Renaissance influences, Scott has developed a repertoire of songs on the hammered dulcimer which he now performs at Downtown Disney, concerts, corporate events, private parties, schools, libraries, street fairs, Celtic festivals, and Scottish Highland Games throughout Orange County, Central and Northern California, Las Vegas, and San Diego.

As a multi-instrumentalist, Scott plays and records the majority of what he calls his "backing tracks." These tracks are studio mixes of guitars, cello, bass, drums, mountain dulcimer, mandolins, and synthesizers to create the foundation of his music. He then performs live with the hammered dulcimer to combine the sounds for a presentation of what sounds like a full ensemble.

Scott has four studio albums, The Road to Lisdoonvarna (Celtic), Home for the Holidays (Christmas), Tristan of the Western Sea (massage / yoga / meditation), and his recently-released HAMMERock. This new CD is 100% rock and roll and has songs like 'Stairway to Heaven', The Cure's 'Just Like Heaven', Billy Idol's 'White Wedding', Elton John's 'Daniel', Coldplay's 'The Scientist', and R.E.M.'s 'Losing My Religion'.

Since the hammered dulcimer is such an unusual instrument, people are very drawn to it. Children, especially, find it mesmerizing. "It's perhaps the best part of this adventure," Scott says, "…watching the expressions on children's faces, talking to them, and the best is letting them play the dulcimer. There are always several that leave an impact on me whenever I play. It's very heartfelt and magical."
