Scott Wilkins has been jamming since 1974, first on bass, then mandolin and guitar. He has been teaching music for decades. He has performed throughout the U.S. and currently plays with numerous bands in South Jersey including The Blind Squirrels, Let’s Ride Bikes, and Gladstone Revival. Scott started an after-school program at Lindenwood High School, called “Hey, We’re Jammin’ ” in 2009. Scott’s natural tendency is to encourage everyone to play an instrument, and his passion is to help beginners learn the art of jamming. Scott is also the founder of BackstageView.com which interviews artists, showcases bands and keeps up with the Grass Roots scene.
