Alison Scott will perform as a part of the Staples Motley Area Arts Council’s season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, in Centennial Auditorium in Staples. The concert is underwritten by Mid-Central Federal Savings Bank.

Working with multi-platinum guitarist/producer Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg, Etta James, Jonny Lang), drummer Peter Anderson (Polara, Honeydogs), bassist Steve Price (Rex Daisy) and keyboardist James Tyler O’Neill, Scott performs in Minneapolis.

She received the Arts Tour Minnesota grant as part of the arts and cultural heritage fund through the Minnesota State Arts Board, which helped to make this concert possible.
