Scott and Rhodes bring ‘melodic songs and funky music’ to Golden Civic Centre

Nico Rhodes is returning to the Civic Centre to perform at Live Kicks once again, but this time he’s playing in a duo with Rick Scott, and the show is sure to impress.

On February 2, catch Rhodes and Scott at 7:30 p.m. for groovy melodies and an award-winning performance.

Scott relocated to Canada from the U.S. in 1972, and quickly became an integral part of the cultural scene here. He got his start playing folk music, and eventually evolved into an “enchantingly whimsical” children’s entertainer.

Classical piano prodigy Rhodes performed at the Civic Centre once before with his mother Joelle Rabu, impressing the audience. Kicking Horse Culture says he is an impressive performer, gifted arranger, and accompanist.

“At that show, [Rabu] mentioned that [Rhodes] and [Scott] were working on putting a show together, and the audience was like ‘yeah, that would be great,’” said Kicking Horse Culture director Bill Usher. “I’ve seen them play, but the reviews they are getting at all the other towns they are playing in are fantastic. It’s just been doing so wonderfully.”

Kicking Horse Culture expects the show to be quite a party, expecting to really impress concert-goers. Rhodes and Scott will also play a morning show for Golden Secondary, Lady Grey Elementary, and Nicholson Elementary Schools the day before.

Scott and Rhodes have an interesting history together. When Rhodes was eight years old, he wrote a letter to his hero, Scott. By age 23, Rhodes was orchestrating Scott’s music for symphony. The combination brings unique chemistry to the stage, combining a “venerable folkie” and a sophisticated keyboard player for an unforgettable performance called Roots and Grooves.

“Their CD that they put together was one of my favourites last year. It’s lots of really great melodic songs and really funky music,” Usher said.

Tickets for the show are available at the Art Gallery of Golden, or at the doors at the Civic Centre on February 2 before the show.
