Keith Scott @ Eleven Winery
Oct 27 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Keith Scott @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

Remarkably versatile, Chicago-based blues/rock guitarist Keith Scott has been working his way methodically up through the blues’ ranks since his parents bought him his first guitar at age 14 and his young ears heard Muddy Waters in 1980.

Born in White Plains, N.Y., Scott was first exposed to the music of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Grand Funk Railroad. With this sonic baptism, a mindset and foundation were established for him to explore the realm of blues inhabited by the creme de la creme of Chicago musicians such as Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed and others in that pantheon. Little did Scott know, however, that he would go on in just a few years to actually play with many of the greats of post-war Chicago blues.

As time passed and Scott became acquainted with the greats of blues through their records and performances as well as personally, the blues crept increasingly into his own guitar playing.

Scott has five solo CDs to his credit, among these, “Heavy Blues,” “World Blues” and “Universal Blues.” His “Tennessee Blues,” released in Fall of 2011, has been reviewed favorably by Living Blues, the world’s premier blues magazine.

Scott maintains an ambitious touring schedule that has him driving hundreds of miles a week to perform as an acoustic, solo artist throughout Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin. He frequently makes treks to play clubs in the Pacific Northwest and Montana, while spending time in the summer working festivals with his electric band.

The winery is open from 12-5pm, live music from 1-4pm.
