Rick Scott & Nico Rhodes: Roots and Grooves

Rick Scott & Nico Rhodes: Roots and Grooves

Beloved veteran folkie and brilliant young keyboard ace join forces in an inter-generational alchemy of roots, blues, jazz and humour. Rick and Nico blur all boundaries, in a word, they cook! ROOTS & GROOVES is a multi-genre conversation across the generations, featuring songs old and new spiced with mastery, mischief and joie de vivre.

Forty years apart in age, dulcimer maverick Rick Scott and classically trained pianist Nico Rhodes create music in the moment for the sheer joy of it.  In 2017 they recorded their ROOTS & GROOVES CD live from the floor in a single day. They have since performed over 80 shows around BC, bringing audiences to their feet from Victoria to Golden.

“Incredible musicians, wonderful entertainers! Rick and Nico reinvent ten, they hit it out of the park on so many levels. So much talent, so much joy, so much love!” ~ Duncan Showroom

“Individually, Rick and Nico are highly entertaining, gifted musicians. Together are a force of nature. ROOTS & GROOVES is a musical gift for the audience.”
