• BIO:

Don Scott, singer, songwriter, guitarist, rack harmonica and all-around seasoned blues man has been performing for 48+ years throughout the US, the UK, Europe, Asia and Mexico. 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 Richard "Hacksaw" Harney. Whether in a full band or solo, and now duo with Rosanne Licciardi on percussion, Scott is well schooled in the idiom. He has 8 studio CDs to his credit with a Minnesota music award for best blues recording in 1997 and an IBC nomination in Memphis for winning the best Blues recording for the Minnesota Blues Society in 2013. Scott has been nominated for the Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame 2017.

Percussionist, Rosanne Licciardi grew up in the musical scene of Rochester, NY in the 60's. She studied and performed classical and jazz piano for 25+ years winning numerous awards in music and theater. Dancing her way through life, Rosanne frequented the African discotheques in Montreal in the 90's and then began a weekly drum and dance soiree back in her hometown. In 2012, a chance meeting over a James Booker tribute party led to an unexpected music relationship. She was 66 and he was 64. They hit it off. She began drumming in 2015, starting with a djembe and various other hand drums. Nowadays keeps the rhythm with a couple of octo-snare cajons and a high-hat. Today they are touring the US and Mexico where they play standing gigs 4 nights a week. They also played 4 gigs in Ireland in 2017. Together, they rock it!
