• BIO:
WELCOME BLUES LOVERS! Thanks for visiting our website. We are acoustic blues & roots artists, Don Scott and Rosanne Licciardi. We play blues, rock, jazz, country, and swing around the US and Mexico. You can check out our latest if you click on the AUDIO tab at the top of the page. You will find six tunes that we recorded live in January, 2023 at El Pirata, Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

With Scott on guitar, national resonator, rack harmonica and vocals, and Rosanne on cajon, foot bass and a highhat, we get a full band sound for just two people. Our repertoire includes over 400 songs with 35 originals. Combining 100+ years of musicianship, we have played hundreds of gigs together in the past 9 years, delivering seamless performances to blues fans everywhere.

Scott, a disabled Vietnam Veteran, has three cassette recordings with his band, the Dust Bowl Blues Band plus 8 solo CD's to his credit, garnering a Minnesota Music award for best blues recording in 1997, an IBC nomination in Memphis for the best blues recording from the Minnesota Blues Society in 2013 and was recently inducted into the Minnesota Blues hall of Fame, October 17, 2021. In a career spanning over 50 years, he has shared the stage with Lazy Bill Lucas, Mighty Joe Young, Pinetop Perkins and the Legendary Blues Band, James Harmon, Janiva Magness, Rusty Zinn, William Clarke and countless others. He has toured the country and Europe performing in France, Ireland, Amsterdam, Scotland, England and Mexico.

Licciardi studied and performed classical piano for 30 years, then followed MoTown and Third World music. She promoted African music in Rochester, NY and danced in the African discotheques in Amsterdam and Montreal. Rhythm was her life and when it came time to play percussion, her energy flowed right into the drums.
