• BIO:
Acoustic blues and roots artists, Don Scott and Rosanne Licciardi rock their fans with their unique blend of blues, rock, jazz, country, and swing around the US and Mexico.

Scott, a disabled Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient, plays guitar, slide, harmonica, sings and writes his own music, peppering sweet instrumentals with songs of justice. A well-known name in the upper Midwest as founder of the legendary Dust Bowl Blues Band, and also as a solo performer, Scott has shared the stage with many blues greats during his 50-year career. He has 8 CD's to his credit and a Minnesota Music award for best blues recording in 1997 and a IBC nomination in Memphis for the best blues recording from the Minnesota Blues Society in 2013.He was inducted into The Minnesota Blues hall of Fame October 17th, 2021.

Licciardi, an all-around artist and percussionist, began hand drumming in 2013 at the age of 69 with a djembe and various cajons. She had 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.

The couple met in 2012 when they were both living in The Big Easy, and began playing together a year later. In 2014, they married and now travel and play around the US, Europe and Mexico -- unplugged but with the exuberance and full sound of a band. Their 400-song repertoire will have you snapping your fingers and tapping your toes...
