The Scott Family
The Scott Family started out singing for The Lord many years ago. Brothers Danny Scott, Willis Scott and Richard Scott began singing shape notes in the barn with their grandfather. Their dad, D.C. Scott, Jr. continued the tradition. The gospel message through song continues into the third generation with the addition of Danny’s three daughters, Carla Scott Combs, Amanda Scott Crum and Molly Scott Derry.
Kermit Monk is one of the lead singers and also the lead guitar player. Listen to his playing and you will hear influences from a wide range of great guitar players..... Don Rich, Jerry Reed, Brent Mason, James Burton, Roy Nichols, Redd Volkaert, Tony Rice, Doc Watson, Jerry Garcia ....the list goes on and on.
Kermit was raised in a musical family and played his first show, with the band Southbound, at age 14. He has remained active in the local roots music scene, for many years, playing with traditional country bands, outlaw country bands and even a few bluegrass bands. Kermit is also one of the songwriters for the band.
