Support Act

Rhiannon Scutt

Influenced by Ani DiFranco’s percussive guitar style and Lindsey Buckingham’s rapid fingerpicking, Rhiannon’s unique guitar technique has often garnered attention.

Together with her charismatic stage presence and emotive lyrics, she has alone as a captivating performer without need of supporting instrumentation.

As an urge to collaborate with other artists and extend her sound outside her own capabilities has grown; through experimentation, play, and an impressive array of accomplished musical collaborators,

Rhiannon has developed a new sound, and through that, an intriguing collection of new work.
Think the tender lyrics of Adrienne Lenker, the syncopated electronic rhythms of Sylvan Esso and the witchy magic of Stevie Nicks.
