Father's Day Blues
Sunday 18th June
Scott Wainwright will be LIVE from 12 o'clock in the Tampus Bar courtyard
Scott Wainwright is a Yorkshire-based singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. His music draws from various musical genres including Blues, Gospel, Folk, Jazz and Hip Hop as well as various ‘World’ musics, such as African, Hawaiian, and Indian.
Working with acoustic fingerstyle and bottleneck guitar, harmonica, and occasional ukulele, Scott draws on his wide love for these types of music and celebrates the joy of pure creativity.
Writing and performing both vocal and instrumental pieces, Scott records regularly and now has a vast and diverse back catalogue of material. He has released numerous albums; EP’s and singles over the years, which have ranged in style from ‘Electric Blues and Hip Hop’ fusions (Every Man Has His Critics), to solo instrumental guitar workouts (What We Cannot Hold). In between these releases, there have been regular bouts of ‘Lo-Fi’ folk (All That Glitters is Not Gold) and the odd dabbling as an acoustic balladeer (Whispers from a Kind River), whilst often drifting through the more experimental country blues sound that can be found on his ‘Strangers Here’ album.
