Scott Cook and the Second Chances
In partnership with the Canmore Folk Festival

  August 25, 2019, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm  | Sunday

Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his tunes weave threads of folk, roots, blues, soul and country over spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements.
