FSU Presents Appalachian Blues Musician Jeffrey Scott at Mountain City Traditional Arts
Appalachian blues musician, Jeffrey Scott, will perform at Mountain City Traditional Arts, 25 E. Main St., Frostburg, on Saturday, March 5, at 7 p.m.

Scott has performed at many blues festivals around the country, and his repertoire includes Piedmont blues, country blues, gospel, jazz and ragtime.
He credits many of his songs and stories to his Uncle John, as well as the musical influences of John Cephas, Doc Watson, Mississippi Jon Hurt, Blind Boy Fuller and Blind Blake.
