Review in The Link
Songs To Sing & Jokes To Tell

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Pete Scott, from Walker, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, returns with this exceptional album - 12 songs + bonus track - "featuring his trademark mixture of the comic and the poignant, combining a dry sense of humour with his skill at finding meaning in the everyday details of life".

Echoes of Jacques Brel (a Geordie Brel), and Jake Thackray in tunes such as Spam "I'm fed up to the back teeth I am with spam..." A sort of piss-take of country and western forms in My iPod Has Turned Into Hank Williams. Hilarious BB King Keyring and I'd Rather Be A Writer Than A Critic.

Pete started out in North East folk clubs and went on to tour nationally and internationally, supporting Lindisfarne, Janis Ian, John Martyn, Richard Thompson, Gretchen Peters...

Shrewd, compassionate and full of humour - there's a definite and particularly North East flavour to all these songs. Pete's straightforward acoustic guitar underpins all tracks, with some additional guitar and dobro from Jim Hornsby on a few. If you get the chance to see Pete Scott, seize it.
