While waiting in line to enter the Ranch for Friday’s festival, a queue-mate from Taos who attended the on-site Songwriters School during the previous week shared how valuable the workshop was this year. He was excited to have established a mentoring relationship with one of the artists, also a performer on Friday’s ticket. As we discussed the day’s lineup and came to Darrell Scott, my queue-mate said his mentor told him that in Nashville, “Darrell Scott is god” among his singer/songwriter peers.
Quite a statement, but if you’re familiar with Darrell’s work, you know this is not so far off the mark. If you’re new to Darrell, you’ll get a taste for his deep talent with this 75 minute primer. Once again, thanks to the technical crew at Planet Bluegrass for mixing their trademark pristine sound you’ll hear on this recording.
