BIO

After nearly a decade of performing all over the West with their “60s’ infused” rock group the Strolling Scones, Rick Stockton, Helen Highwater and Harry Knipe have evolved the band into a more compact unit, called simply The Scones.

Performing with acoustic guitar, banjo, bass, drums, and sometimes keyboards, they describe their music as “rockin’ & rollin' Americana”. The members of the group are accomplished singers and the group’s sound, centered around the songs written by guitarist Rick Stockton, are alive with harmony. Stockton has garnered praise and accolades for his songwriting and The Scones are devoted to performing these songs with energy and humor.

Having shared the stage individually or collectively with such names as Joe Cocker, Lyle Lovett, John Cowen, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Robert Earl Keen, The Country Gazette, John Lee Hooker Jr., Otis Taylor, 3 Twins, Chuck Pyle, and more, The Scones are seasoned pros who provide a high energy, entertaining experience that you will not want to miss!
