• BIO:
Don Scott, singer, songwriter, guitarist, rack harmonica and all-around seasoned blues man has been performing for nearly 50 years throughout the US,the UK, Europe, Asia and Mexico. A Minnesota native and disabled Vietnam vet, Scott started the legendary Dust Bowl Blues Band in 1970 and never looked back. Over the years he's shared the stage with Lazy Bill Lucas, Mighty Joe Young, The Legendary Blues Band, James Harmon and William Clark to name a few. His musical influences include Sonny Terry, Brownie McGee, T-Bone Walker, Count Basie, Big Bill Broonzy, Etta Baker and Blind Blake Whether in a full band, solo,and now duo with Licciardi on percussion,Scott never disappoints. He has 8 CDs to his credit and a Minnesota music award for best blues recording in 1997 plus an IBC nomination in Memphis for winning the best Blues recording for the Minnesota Blues Society
in 2013

Percussionist, Rosanne Licciardi grew up Rochester, NY under the Motown influence of the 60's. She studied and performed classical and jazz piano for 25+ years. She also played bugle in an award-winning competition drum corps. In the 90's, becoming engaged with African and world music, she founded Soiree Africaine, a community celebration of drum and dance. In 2012, while they were both living in New Orleans, a chance meeting over a James Booker birthday tribute led to a union that has flourished since. She began hand drumming with Scott in 2015 keeping the rhythm with various cajons and cymbals. Every year they tour the US and Mexico where they play standing gigs 4-5 nights a week.
