Community Events Not-to-Miss Nashville Singer-Songwriter Darrell Scott at Bartlett Arboretum

Darrell Scott
  • Date: July 21, 2019
  • Time: 4:00 pm
  • Location: Bartlett Arboretum, Belle Plaine, KS

Darrell Scott, iconic songwriter and performer, makes a rare appearance in the Heartland at Bartlett Arboretum this Sunday, July 21 at 4 p.m. Ask a group of music industry insiders to name their top five favorite singer-songwriters, and almost certainly they’ll name Scott. This consummate musician can not only pen and pick a song – he’s a highly sought-after Nashville session musician.

Scott has composed a stable of hit songs covered by well-known performers, including:

“It’s a Great Day to Be Alive” – Travis Tritt
“You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” – Brad Paisley, Patty Loveless, and Kathy Mattea
“Long Time Gone” – Dixie Chicks
“We’ve Got Nothing but Love to Prove” – Faith Hill
“Out in The Parking Lot” – Guy Clark and Brad Paisley with Alan Jackson
“River Take Me” – Sam Bush

Scott’s music shines light on matters of the heart – the grit, grease, gristle, and most importantly, the marrow in the breastbone. The wordsmithing and craftsmanship of Scott’s songs re-invigorate this timeless artform.

Hear this remarkable songwriter perform live under the century-old tree canopy at historic Bartlett Arboretum this Sunday, July 21.

Gates open at 3 p.m. Show at 4 p.m.

Admission $15. Children 10 years and younger enter for free. Pack a picnic for the lawn or purchase provisions from local vendors Luciano’s, Lyons Den BBQ, and Little Lion Ice Cream. Please, leave the pups at home.

Now Appearing: Peaches!

Peaches will make an appearance at this week’s Arb Market! The arboretum’s orchard produced a plenitude of peaches this season.  Stop by the market table during this Sunday’s concert and pick some up before you sit down for your picnic on the lawn.

And pack your re-usable shopping bags to purchase farm fresh produce for your kitchen table during the week.  Bee Farm Fresh of (bushel and a) Peck, KS will set up under the tree canopy with their seasonal vegetables, and the arboretum will be right there with them to sell produce from their own Veterans’ Victory Garden and their signature jams and jellies. Support their expanded mission to provide local, nutritious food to patrons and local community.
