JazzFest 2013 Performer Back in Sioux Falls Saturday
There is no question Holt has diversified his pure talent over the course of 7 records and countless miles on the road. While blues remains at the core of his being, he is evolving as an artist. His music is a reflection of his own character as both a man and an artist, growing every day. He reflects, “I am a bluesman through and through, and it is always a part of who I am when recording or performing. It has been an affirmation over the past year as I play my songs for audiences and have them receive them and embrace them as enthusiastically as the music of the Masters that we play. I believe in every note I play with all my heart, and I have never been more confident or honest lyrically. It really is a special experience to share that with audiences and get such great responses night after night.”
Holt learned from one of the masters, Buddy Guy, as a member of his band for better than a decade before going out on his own and through years of performing, he is one of the best at audience interaction. You feel a part of his shows rather than a spectator. He is without a doubt, one of the best showmen on the blues circuit today.
Holt will bring his Twang & Bang tour to a hidden gem of a club here in Sioux Falls this Saturday night (September 21). Old Skoolz is at 921 E. 8th Street (just a couple blocks northwest of 10th & Cliff) The club has a capacity of only 70, so get your tickets early! The club is gaining a national reputation with artists and agents alike for the welcoming owner and staff and for the support of the fans. Old Skoolz has played host to local artists, up and coming artists and bona-fide blues stars like Walter Trout, Candye Kane, Debbie Davies, Popa Chubby and so many more. If you haven’t been to a show at Old Skoolz yet, add it to the top of your ‘to do’ list.
Tickets for Scott Holt are $15 in advance or $17 at the door if there are any tickets still available.
Other bands already booked in the coming weeks include Popa Chubby September 26, Studebaker John September 28 and Levee Town October 5.
