Darrell Scott is one of the most proliďŹ c and talented songwriters of modern Americana and alt-country music, and judging by the volume of awards he has amassed during his career, it is clear to those in the music industry as well. Darrell and his band will close Friday’s main stage show at the Four Corners Folk Festival, with a 7 p.m. set.


Special to The PREVIEW

I’m not quite sure where this summer has gone, but if you know, could you please tell me? Believe it or not, we are just three weeks away from the start of the 18th annual Four Corners Folk Festival, taking place Aug. 30-Sept. 1 on Reservoir Hill in downtown Pagosa Springs. This year’s amazing lineup of musicians includes the legendary John Hiatt and the Combo, Natalie MacMaster, The Wood Brothers, Elephant Revival, Jimmy LaFave, Slaid Cleaves, Aoife O’Donovan Band, Sarah Siskind and Travis Book, John Fullbright, New Country Rehab, Rose’s Pawn Shop, Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams, The Lone Bellow, The Giving Tree Band and this week’s two featured artists, Darrell Scott and Baskery. An exciting addition to the music this year is the Preview in the Park concert, happening on Thursday, Aug. 29, at 5 p.m. in Town Park. Admission is free, and two festival bands — Halden Wof-

ford and the Hi-Beams and New Country Rehab — will entertain on the gazebo stage until 8 p.m. that evening. The event will be weather dependent, so if rain is forecast, it will be cancelled. The Chamber of Commerce will serve up food, and beer and wine will be available for purchase. On Friday, the festivities will move up to Reservoir Hill when the main stage music gets underway. Veteran festival performer Darrell Scott was baptized in country music — the old country music of cheating, drinking, working, longing- pre-Garth, prevideo, pre-urban-cowboy country music — the voice of working people, people of the land. Darrell’s own people came from Kentucky: poor tobacco farmers and Harlan County coal miners, descendants of Scots and Irish who brought their music with them. Darrell’s latest album, Long Ride Home, is country music how he remembers it from his childhood, with some of the players that made the very music that was both lifting and breaking his n See Festival on next page
