Newfoundland musician and visual artist Scott Goudie has played guitar since the mid-60s when he took an interest in blues and jazz. While studying fine art in Vancouver in the early 1970s, he met Mississippi Delta blues man Johnny Shines, a contemporary of blues legend Robert Johnson. Goudie then moved to Alabama and studied and played with Johnny Shines, specializing in acoustic slide guitar. He later met and played with John Hammond Jr., Muddy Waters and Albert Collins to name a few.
In St. John's, Scott met fellow blues musician Denis Parker and started playing with him over thirty years ago, during the early 1970s. Scott released his critically acclaimed album Renata in 1982 and with Neil Bishop released a live CD, The Gig, in 1997 which was nominated Best Blues CD by the ECMA. Scott's recent CD, Scott W. Goudie: Acoustic Live collects remarkablelive concert performances into a finely recorded and designed package.
Besides his ongoing solo and duet work, Scott may be seen in performing in band contexts with the Parker Goudie Blues Band as well as with Rowdy Blues.
Scott continues to work as a visual artist and blues musician both locally and internationally.
