Pete Scott

Musical Director

Pete Scott is a singer-songwriter born in Walker, Tyneside, with several CDs of his own material published.

In the 1980’s, Pete toured Britain with various big-name acts including Lindisfarne, the Searchers, Janis Ian, Judy Tzuke and Richard Thompson.

Since then, he has continued to perform in folk clubs and has worked in theatre, producing his own show The Rainbow Road at the Gulbenkian Studio, and working with novelist Carol Clewlow on One for the Money at the Edinburgh Festival.

In 2002, Pete released The Day of Life, an album of songs by the 19th Century Tyneside writer Joe Wilson, famed for Keep Your Feet Still Geordie Hinny, but also the author of many monologues and poems which have been largely forgotten. Pete set a collection of these songs to his own melodies and arrangements.
