  Darrell Scott grew up in Kentucky, as part of a family country band led by his father Wayne Scott. His recent album, Long Road Home,  pays tribute to those country roots and includes a duet with his father. Wayne Scott died in 2011 in an automobile accident. The event led Darrell Scott to write these words at the time:

 

 "this morning"

 

 my father died this morning...

     car accident

 his first    his last

 

 helicoptered to trauma center

     his end begun

& ended

    all

 in 4 hours

 

eyewitnesses say he ran

     a red light

in front of a semi

 

 impact

 

 and the car drove half

 a mile before resting inside

 a wendy's on 25E

 

corbin, knox county,

 kentucky

 

 march 2, 1934 to this morning,

     this morning,

 november 18, 2011

 

 i feel certain

     he was listening

to music

    Brilliant! What a great show! Thanks so much for sharing Darrell Scott, the Susquehanna Folk Music Society and Voxology with a wider audience. I was transported right back to my seat in the audience watching Darrell Scott weave his magic for all of us there. Congratulations on the new expanded format. Bravo!
