Scott Aycock

Co-host of Folk Salad

Scott Aycock is first and foremost a singer/songwriter and a poet. He also happens to be a Marital and Family Therapist, which gives him much insight into human nature and provides fuel for his story driven songs. Also, he grew up in a family of storytellers, so it was only natural that his songwriting become an expression of that tradition.

Scott also is co-host and producer of Folk Salad, an eclectic music program that airs weekly on KWGS and KOSU, both, Oklahoma NPR affiliates. Six years ago Scott created House Concerts Unlimited, which seeks to bring a diverse range of singer/songwriters and bands from around the world to play intimate shows in his own living room. Scott also has enriched the community by forming coalitions with various entities around the city, utilizing their places of business to hold House Concerts, thus the name House Concerts Unlimited.

Scott is truly a lover of song and supporter of the vast and rich musical heritage here in Oklahoma. As for his own accomplishments in music; in 2006 he won 3rd place in the Billboard Songwriting Contest in the rock category, and in 2005 he won first place in the Ozark Mt. Folk Festival Songwriting Contest. Last year he won 3rd place in the Oklahoma Hall of Fame songwriting contest. He has released two CD’s; the first in 2000, called Pennies On The Track, and the 2nd in 2010 called Foxhole Radio. Both used all Oklahoma musicians, engineers and producers.
