Alison Scott returns to southern Minnesota with show in ZumbrotaPublished 6:24pm Saturday, August 31, 2013
The soulful voice of Alison Scott is once again returning to southern Minnesota when she plays the Crossings at Carnegie in Zumbrota at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Scott last played in the area when she performed at the Paramount Theatre last October along with her band that featured Kevin Bowe on guitar, Peterson Anderson on drums and Steve Price on bass.
This time around though, she will be playing the stage solo, fresh off maternity leave when she welcomed Grace, now five months, into the world.
“Most of our shows are either with a guitar player (Kevin) or I bring my full band,” Scott said. “At the Crossings, most they can get is 80 people in there. It lends itself to a more intimate show. It’s a great listening show.”
Scott is most known for her shows with the band, but performing solo shows opens up some options for Scott.
“I have a little more liberty to change things on the spot,” Scott said. “We’ve been together for such a long time the band is pretty good at following me if I go off on a little road trip in the middle of a song, but you don’t do some things because they wouldn’t anticipate things. It’s more about vocals.”
It’s also an opportunity to get back on stage.
“It’s nice to have music, because I get my moment to be on the other side of myself and not mom,” Scott said. “Baby is consuming my life at all other times, except when I get to be up there. It’s multiple sides of myself.”
Tickets for the show are $16 in advance and $18 at the door. Get tickets at https://www.vendini.com/ticket-software.html?t=tix&e=f4090e188af91dab9038ac42383d0226
