 Edmonton troubadour Scott Cook is a busy man. Between booking, promoting and playing over 150 dates a year, touring back and forth across the continent while living out of his van, he's managed to release 3 full-length albums in the last four years. His third, Moonlit Rambles, shows the prairie balladeer in fine form, deepening his craft and raising the stakes. Three-part harmonies, touches of electric, acoustic and tenor guitars, accordion, fiddle, organ, dobro, and pedal steel colour the arrangements, but at the heart of things is a mellow fingerstyle groove and a plain-spoken clarity that's rarely heard these days.

To celebrate the release, Scott and his band The Long Weekends are taking their danceable blend of folk, roots and reggae on a two-month tour of Alberta and BC, visiting many small communities along the way and ending up at the North Country Fair. Bandmates Jesse Dee and Jacquie B are along for the ride with songs from their upcoming release Our Ghosts Will Fill These Walls. Info, tunes, tour dates, and hobo travelogue can be found on

Folks say:

"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." -David Francey, 3x Juno winner

"Edmonton-based songwriter Scott Cook belongs to that fine tradition of traveling minstrels like Woody Guthrie... definitely a writer to keep an eye on." -Barry Hammond, Penguin Eggs

"Basically, this is exactly the kind of act you'd be happy to stumble down the hill or through the birches and hear at a music festival... warm like a campfire, familiar like the lake down the road... deep-thinking, introspective stuff" -Fish Griwkowsky, The Edmonton Sun
