I 'N I ' I • What: Cal Scott and Kathryn Claire in concert • When:7 p.m. Friday • Where: Joe Beans Coffee,1009 Adams Ave., La Grande • Details: Admission is $10 at the door
By Jeff Petersen Go! staff
Award-winning Portland songwriter Cal Scott owes his success in life totally to the three years he spent at La Grande Junior High. Well, not totally. But Scott, who will be in concert at 7 p.m. Friday at Joe Beans Coffee, 1009Adams Ave., La Grande, along with Kathryn Claire, does believeLa Grande was a great place to grow up. "I think growing up in a small town is a part of anybody's ethical and aesthetic make up," Scott said. 'That informs the music, the sort of songs that I write." And write songs he does. Scott is a national award-winning songwriter. Admission is $10 at the door. Scott, whose dad was the high school band director, lived in La Grande fiom 1952 to 1965 and was in a garage band here. The family then moved to West Linn and McMinnville, and Scott went on to minor in music at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. Hig big break, he said, came as a college senior in 1972 when he auditioned at Frankenstein's Tavern. "I met lots of moves and shakers in the Portland music community," Scott said. Today, as first place winner of The Great American Song Contest, Scott returns to La Grande for a concert that will feature him on vocals, guitar and harmonica and Claire on vocals, fiddle and guitar. Scott will perform songs from his latest CD,"Carved Wood Box." In
Kathryn Claire not only sings on four of the songs on Cal Scott's "Carved Wood Box," she also will sing from her new CD, "Shimmering Blue."
airplay all across the country on folk playlists. Scott wrote all the songs on "Carved Wood Box" except for two. The title song,"Carved Wood Box," was co-written with Marv Ross of Quarterflash fame and producer of The Trail Band. The other co-written song, this one with Burke, is "London Town" about Irish immigrants who moved in the late 1940s fiom Ireland to England to rebuild London after World War II. "Kevin is one of premiere Irish fiddlers in the world, and I've done two CDs with him," Scott said. 'This storyis loosely based on some of the people he knew." Some people might call"Carved Wood Box" folk, but it's much more. "I've had a really wide variety
of experiences musically," Scott said."I've played jazz, rock and roll, different kinds of folk music, and that's reflected in the songs I write." Scott lists his biggest influences as five-time GrammyAward winner James Taylor of"Fire and Rain" fame,Paul Simon, who wrote and performed'The Sound of Silence" with Art Garfunkel, and Marc Cohn, whose one big hit is 'Walking in Memphis." Others playing on"Carved Wood Box" are a who's who of music. Notable contributors include AndreaZonn,a singer and fiddle player who tours with Taylor. She sings and plays on two of the songs on"Carved Wood Box." Jeff Taylor contributes some nifty accordion. Taylor played on"Carved Wood Box" between touring with Elvis Costello and a Nashville studio ses•
sion with Simon. The album rs gettrng rave reviews from around the world. One example, fiom Mitch Park, fiom the"Folkon Sunday" show on 104.7FM, Hastings, New Zealand: "Cal Scott writes story songs the way they should be written, with clearplotand simple words,so natural you would think you were listening to him talk, songs worth repeated listening."

addition to accompanying Scott, Claire will sing songs from her new CD,"Shimmering Blue." "Kathryn Claire sings on four of the songs on'Carved Wood Box' and is a tremendous fiddler," Scott said."She just got back from a tour of Europe." A listen to"Carved Wood Box" revealsa ma ster songwriter. "I've always liked story songs," Scott said.'They're like short stories. You take the kernel of an ideaand castitasa shortstory.I like telling the tale of some kind of event or situation that makes a change in a person's life." Scott isthem usicaldirectorof the eight-piece ensemble, The Trail Band, and also records and tours with Irish fiddler Kevin Burke. Their CD"Across the Black River" was hailed as"oneofthe top 12 world music CDs of 2007" by the New York Times. "Carved Wood Box" is receiving
