Scott Anderson

The Scott Anderson Band can provide great bluegrass music for your show, festival, private party or wedding. Scott is available for banjo setup work, and sometimes buys, sells, and trades quality banjos, guitars, mandolins, fiddles, and other instruments so you may want to check with him on those things. We are also available for recording session work on banjo, guitar, fiddle, vocals, and more. Scott is available for private banjo and guitar lessons in the Gainesville, Florida area

Scott Anderson has been a fixture on the Southeastern bluegrass and gospel circuit for three decades. He began with the contemporary and Southern gospel of First Light, then played the traditional bluegrass sound of Tom Henderson’s Bluegrass Parlor Band, followed by the driving grungegrass of Endless Highway , and the sweet gospel of Gentle River. Following the critical success of his first solo project Rivers, stints as banjoist and vocalist with The Jim Hurst Band and Keith Sewell, and a breakthrough CD project with his daughter Amanda on Another Day, Scott has brought these influences together into the powerful acoustic sound of The Scott Anderson Band. With an All-Star cast Scott dredged up a swampy soup of originals and favorites on his latest project, Tales from the Swamp. Scott has also performed with Claire Lynch, Vassar Clements, Larry Rice, Byron Berline, Adam Steffey, Clay Hess, Chubby Wise, Allen Shadd, Chief Jim Billie, and the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra (yes, with a banjo!) Scott has been featured in Banjo Newsletter, and writes for the magazine as well, including articles and interviews with Tony Trischka, Bill Evans, Barry Abernathy, Greg Cahill, Scott Vestal, Cory Walker and B̩la Fleck. Scott is also a teaching mainstay at the Suwannee Banjo Camp every spring.
