See Blues Performer Keith Scott at SLR

Performing May 31st and September 27th at Swan Lake Resort Singer, guitarist and songwriter Keith Scott has been a part of the Chicago blues scene since 1981. In addition to working with Johnny Littlejohn, Hubert Sumlin, Eddie Taylor and Hip Linkchain, Scott traveled the world as part of a distinguished lineup of the Jimmy Dawkins Blues Band in the 1980s and 90s. After honing his guitar style and familiarity with the stage behind Dawkins, Scott embarked on a solo career, presenting his trademark heavy blues in the highly amplified Dawkins’ style, as well as forms reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix’ Band of Gypsies and Johnny Winter. While still gigging with his rocking band, Scott has quieted things down on his most recent studio effort, the 10-song WORLD BLUES He has recorded five CDs of original music, and his music has been featured on MTV’s “Real World” and “Road Rules” and the Disney Channel. Recently Scott has become a favorite on the college circuit and travels throughout the Midwest to rave reviews. In Chicago he has performed at the Hard Rock Cafe, House of Blues, Metro, the Chicago Blues Fest, and at Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks games.
