NISSWA — Scott Cook, accompanied by partner Pamela Mae, will present the last concert of the fall season for Grassroots Concerts in Nisswa on Friday, Nov. 11.

In 2007, the troubadour from the Canadian province of Alberta quit his job teaching kindergarten in Taiwan and moved into a minivan. He’s made his living in concerts ever since, touring Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, averaging 150 shows and a dozen summer festivals a year, and releasing seven albums along the way.

Cook’s latest work, “Tangle of Souls,” spent two weeks at No. 1 on Alberta’s province-wide community radio network CKUA, and earned Scott his third Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, for English Songwriter of the Year.

He is touring the album all over North America, believing more than ever that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
