MainStreet presents Darrell Scott at the Historic Ritz Theatre located in Downtown Winter Haven,
Tuesday October 12, 2021. We are excited to partner with the Historic Ritz Theatre on this event
to provide adequate social distancing, please note the show will be held at the Ritz.
Darrell Scott is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who mines and cultivates the everyday moment,
taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest,
lilting, blooming, and resonating. The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is
at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that
love is all that matters, that we don’t always get it right, but that’s the instinctive and
requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.
Darrell Scott comes from a musical family with a father who had him smitten with guitars by the age of 4,
alongside a brother who played Jerry Reed style as well. From there, things only ramped up with literature
and poetry endeavors while a student at Tufts University, along with playing his way through life.
This would never change.
After recently touring with Robert Plant and the Zac Brown Band (2 years with each), and producing albums
for Malcolm Holcomb and Guy Clark and being named “songwriter of the year” for both ASCAP and NSAI,
these days find the four time Grammy nominee roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage hiking along the
small river, creating delicious meals with food raised on his property and playing music. He often
leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy
as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself in life.
Doors open at 6:30 pm, the show starts at 7:00 pm
