Scott Smith was born in Kansas but currently lives and works in Sussex, UK.

Ahead of his upcoming appearance at the Brighton Acoustic Session he gave an insight into the music that has influenced him. It would interesting, from a British perspective, to find out how typical his experiences are.

The full interview is HERE

Hi Stuart--
I read the interview...I'd say his influences pretty much mirror mine in the 70's and 80's, but in the 60's my parents steeped me in Baez/Dylan/Ochs material, along with a hefty dose of Guthrie and Seeger and Carter family. My mother was also making tapes for the GIs in VietNam, so I got a whole lot of Tijuana Brass, Vanilla Fudge, Jimi Hendrix, Moody Blues, Greatful Dead, and whatever the soldiers wanted to hear.

I grew up in New England, a "fur piece" as they say from Kansas. Middle class family.

Hope that helps...

V

From a glance at the interview, I would have thought his musical story no different from that of most of his generation in the English-speaking world - no?

I used to love Hank Marvin, then I heard Doc Watson nothing was ever the same again.

No. I grew up with country, rock and roll, some jazz, classical music, folk music and church hymns. I would have been exposed to rock music, but I avoid it.

Frankly, I doubt if the interviewee is really naming all the kinds of music he experienced in Wichita, a city once noted for its aircraft industry, and inhabited by many educated people.
