• BIO:
WELCOME BLUES LOVERS! Thanks for visiting our website. We are acoustic blues & roots artists, Don Scott and Rosanne Licciardi. We play blues, swing, jazz, funk and country (including 35 originals) around the US and 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. Combining 100+ years of musicianship, we have played hundreds of gigs together in the past 10 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.

Percussionist, Licciardi, received her musical training in Rochester, New York in piano, with awards in music, drum corps, theater, and art. Combining her love of theater and dance, she created a venue that became a popular hangout for international African and Third World music in 1990, earning her acclaim for being 10 years ahead of time on the music scene. Rhythm was her life, and after soaking up blues and jazz in Amsterdam and Montreal, and funk in New Orleans, she began to play her own percussion. The couple met in New Orleans in 2012 and formed a duo in 2014.
