Peghead Nation co-founder Scott Nygaard’s beautiful second solo album, Dreamer’s Waltz, was released 25 years ago, and it is an important and influential document of Scott’s inventive compositions and his interpretations of traditional tunes. In addition to Scott’s progressive guitar playing, the album also features playing from many of the folks that Scott has collaborated with over the years, leaders in the bluegrass and roots music community. These include Darol Anger on fiddle, Jerry Douglas on dobro, Tim O’Brien on fiddle and vocals, John Reischman on mandolin, Mark Schatz on bass, Dirk Powell, and many others.

Scott NygaardTo celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Dreamer’s Waltz, Peghead Nation guitar instructor Flynn Cohen interviewed Scott about the project, diving deep into Scott’s recollections of the creation of one of contemporary bluegrass guitar’s seminal works, as well as Scott’s musical history, guitar technique, and much more. Also joining Flynn and Scott were Brittany Haas and Paul Kowert, who played a couple of tunes from the album. You can watch the entire interview and event in the video on this page!

 

You can also see Scott play “Where To Now?” from Dreamer’s Waltz with Tristan Clarridge (cello), Simon Chrisman (hammered dulcimer), and Tashina Clarridge (fiddle) live at The Back Room in Berkeley a few years ago by clicking here.
