Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
Your work is fantastic!
I am a musician, and Scot and I played at Coke Corner, Disneyland, Anaheim, California for many years in the 1960's.
Scot on banjo and 6 and 12 string guitars, and me on ragtime piano.
While theoretically we were supposed to be there to play the old ragtime tunes from that era,
We adapted all the modern songs of the day – from Dylan to rock, and mixed it in with the jazz. Plus Scot would write songs and we'd do them!
Most days, by the end of the day, we had standing room only for the last show as people were leaving the park and had seen us on the way in.
Coke Corner is on main street, left side at the end so great position.
I have to look and see if I have any recordings put away of our shows. Think there might be some reel to reel recordings somewhere.
I was very sad to learn of Scot's passing, but so happy that his followers are giving him the recognition he deserves.
