Scott Cook — Conor Ryan Hennessy opens
Albertan songwriter Scott Cook will perform at Old Sloop Presents Friday, September 29 at 7:30pm. The performance will be in the handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St. Salem’s Conor Ryan Hennessy will open the show.
In 2007, Scott quit his job teaching kindergarten in Taiwan and moved into a minivan. He’s made his living as a troubadour ever since, touring almost incessantly across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, averaging 150 shows and a dozen summer festivals a year, and releasing seven albums of plainspoken, keenly observant verse along the way. His latest collection Tangle of Souls comes packaged in a cloth-bound, 240-page hardcover book of road stories and ruminations, equal parts introspection and insurrection.
Salem's Conor Ryan Hennessy opens. Conor’s songs reflect his keen eye for observation. He was a New Folk Finalist at the 2023 Kerrville Folk Festival, where he met and impressed Scott Cook.
