Scott Alarik, Novelist

Friday, July 22nd, 2011



Dar Williams calls him “the finest folk writer in the country.”

Pete Seeger calls him “one of the best writers in America.”

Obviously, Scott Alarik is one of the most trusted and revered folk music writers around. He provided insightful coverage of the Boston folk music scene for more than 20 years in The Boston Globe, as well as Sing Out! magazine. He’s also an accomplished and acclaimed singer-songwriter in his own right, who has performed regularly on “A Prairie Home Companion.”

But now he’s ready for something new, and he’s trying on a different hat – that of novelist.

But he didn’t change subject matter.
