May 2020- Hope everyone is doing well. As with every other artist all of our shows have been canceled for the foreseeable future. We will be back to performing when the time is right. Scoot is now in the mixing stage of his new record called “Empty Bottles”. We (Scoot & Marlena) will be doing some live streams. We will keep you posted. Our last live stream raised $650 for a family severely struck by Covid 19. We were glad we could help. Below are three videos we recently show for some cover songs. We hope you enjoy them. Be safe and stay healthy.
Thank you for stopping by. Scoot is almost done recording his follow up to “Six 2 Seven” The new songs are sounding great. This time he has recorded with a full band. Look for it to be released sometime in 2020.
Scoot and Marlena have started writing new songs for a Scoot Horton & Marlena release. They will be testing these new songs at live performances so you will be getting a taste of whats to come.
New stickers are available. Checkout the new design.
As always check the Shows page to see where they/we are playing. We are looking to book some new places so stay tuned.
Scoot has started recording his follow up to “Six 2 Seven” with Marlena Peters, Nate Brewster, and Buddy Griffith at Woody’s House.
NEWS- Spring 2018
Scoot Horton and Marlena Peters were very excited to perform at the Forum Supporting the Voices of Youth Against Gun Violence at the United Nations on Thursday May 17, 2018. It was a very inspiring event. Unfortunately the very next day there was another school shooting in Santa Fe, TX. Our hearts are with those effected by this tragedy and it shows there is more work to be done.
Marlena Peters is now performing/singing with Scoot at a lot of his shows. Marlena has played keyboards and sang back ups for the Max Graham Band and has performed at the United Nations and sporting events. Scoot is very happy to have her by his side. (For full Bio go to Bio page)
Scoot is also working on putting a band together. It’s a slow process but the pieces are staring to fall into place. We will keep you updated as things progress.

Here’s a couple quotes about me and what I do.
“Good time witty realism. It’s a Scootenanny!” -Ira Levin (The Levins)
“A winning collection of sweetly off-kilter songs about stuff that really matters: surviving hardship, being a dad, having good friends…and chicken pot pie” Carter Smith (Common Ground Community Concerts)”
“Woody Guthrie meets the Sex Pistols” Thom Joyce (Beacon Open Mic Host)
For those that don’t know, I started playing music by playing in punk and hardcore bands. You maybe surprised by this if you just know me from my folk/country stuff. It was a big part of my life for a long time and it still is. Well I am proud to share this with you. I had the privilege to work with Tony Rettman and contributed to the book NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990. I conducted a bunch of interviews that are included in this book. If your interested in learning about the early history of New York Hardcore this is a good place to do it. Hardcore helped shape the person I am today, though this book covers the scene a little before I was really involved in it. If you click on the book it will take you to where you can get a copy.
