Award-Winning Singer-Songwriter Cal Scott Returns to the Peninsula Arts Center 

Cal Scott is a singer-songwriter and composer from Portland Oregon, and one of our favorite performers.

He was awarded First Place in the Great American Song Contest in the Singer/Songwriter category for the song, Paid Too Much for the Diamond from his last album, “Carved Wood Box.”

Cal is the musical director of The Trail Band and also records and tours with Irish fiddler Kevin Burke. Their CD “Across the Black River” was hailed as “one of the top 12 world music CDs of 2007” by the New York Times.

He also composes music for film and TV, and has scored over 50 documentaries and specials for PBS, including three “Frontlines” and Oregon Public Broadcasting’s “Oregon Experience.”  A master of many styles, his specialty is scoring to picture: creating the right music to tell the story. In addition to his dramatic orchestrations, he has developed a feel for folk music of many cultures, helping a film establish a sense of place and time.

The Peninsula Arts Center is located at 504 Pacific Ave. N., Long Beach, WA.

Tickets $15 and are available on Brown Paper Tickets, or by emailing or calling Bill at (360) 901-0962.

Beer, wine, and other refreshments are available for purchase.
