"Incredible musicians, wonderful entertainers, I loved this show!"

"Together Rick and Nico are a force of nature. ROOTS & GROOVES is a musical gift for any audience: their talent, chemistry, stories, songs and humour blew the house away."

What do you get when you combine an infamous dulcimer player with a rising jazz pianist, seasoned expertise with youthful exuberance, old school groove and Broadway chops?

ROOTS & GROOVES is a musical conversation across the generations spiced with mastery, improvisation and humour. Forty years apart in age, Rick and Nico blur all boundaries. In a word, they cook! In their first year as a duo ROOTS & GROOVES released an eponymous CD and performed 30 shows to ovations at folk clubs, festivals, theatres and BC Government House.

Since pioneering BC rogue folk with Pied Pumkin, Rick Scott has performed in 9 countries and released 19 recordings honoured with 3 Juno nominations, WCMA, Parents’ Choice and Canadian Folk Music Awards.

“Rick Scott is an enchanter, an alchemist creating gold out of dross with music as his catalyst. He uses every fibre of his being to translate private experience into shared experience.” When he was 8, Nico Rhodes wrote Rick a fan letter; at 25 he arranged Rick’s music for symphony. At 28 he’s in constant demand as an arranger and musical director when not touring with his own jazz trio or chanteuse Joelle Rabu.

“Nico Rhodes is astonishing, you have to hear and see him caress, cajole and at times almost punish the piano. Breath- takingly fresh sounds & style radiate from this young musician.” Rick says, “Nico Rhodes is on fire. Not since Pied Pumkin have I experienced such an unfettered combination of creativity, chops and chutzpah.”
