SCOTT COOK PERFORMS May 19 at the King George Hotel in Cumberland.

Edmonton singer-songwriter Scott Cook will play a gig for his new CD One More Time Around at the King George Hotel in Cumberland May 19. There is no cover charge.

Cook is a tirelessly travelling songwriter who brings honesty, humour, years of roads and a deep love of humanity to his songwriting and storytelling.

His straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, country and soul influences, whether stripped down to fingerpicked acoustic guitar, banjo, ukulele and foot percussion, or backed by his five-piece band The Long Weekends. He has been making a full-time living at music since 2007, travelling the continent while living out of his van.

Cook played 169 shows in 2012, including 13 summer festivals. He was rewarded with a male artist-of-the-year honour at the 2012 Edmonton Music Awards.

Sunday’s show is from 4 to 7 p.m.

After Cumberland, Scott performs May 20 in Powell River, May 21 at Cortes Island and May 22 at Denman Island.
