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.
