Gig of the Week

Rebecca Scott, Multiple Dates


No matter how old you get or how far away you go, when you come home, there will be changes. Old buildings will be gone, replaced by parking lots. Restaurants will have opened, closed and opened again. Old friends will have moved away, new ones will have moved in. Things and people do change. But many stay the same. There are people and things you can count on to be there when you come home. One of those people is Rebecca Scott.

Scott has been playing and singing her beautiful, original folk-styled music in Boise for over 10 years. And we're lucky to have her. Over the years, she's reached national acclaim. She's been lauded in Billboard magazine, all the local papers and has played at prestigious events such as Lilith Fair. With all this attention, you might think Scott would be impossible to get in to see. Not so. Whether playing alone or with a combination of her longtime bandmates-Debby Sager, Ben Burdick and Greg Belzeski-Scott is a woman who obviously loves what she does. So much so, that she plays all of the time and just about everywhere. Scott plays and sings at restaurants, bars, outdoor venues, festivals and more. Her rich, heart-rending voice accompanied by the sweet melodies from her guitar are perfect for intimate settings, but her ability to belt out a tune makes her musical musings just as at home on a larger stage. With performances scheduled through August, if you haven't heard Scott before, here are several opportunities. If you have heard her before, go see her again. And welcome home.
