Jack Scott

found his thrill up the creek

There was no shortage of popular music influences while growing up in Philadelphia in the years of early rock and roll; Bandstand, Jerry Blavat, and the rise of folk music – all before the Beatles changed the landscape for keeps. In those years Jack Scott learned to play acoustic guitar and banjo and ventured into songwriting. His musical influences range from Johnny Horton and The Kingston Trio to Doc Watson, Bobby Darin, Bela Fleck and great songwriters such as Bob Dylan, John Stewart and Tom Waits. In 2001, he discovered Whirled Peas and serves as self appointed “banjo-boy” for the group. His original songs, which number almost 200, have been recorded by Whirled Peas on each of the group’s four CDs, by band-mate John Frink (on John’s solo CD, “Cabin Fever” on Crocodile Tunes), and by Jack on his own 5 demo CDs. He occasionally teaches a beginning banjo course and often finds inspirations and settings for songs in travel opportunities. He lives in Wallingford, is married with two grown daughters and a grand-dog.
