An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special – Darrell Scott (Full Performance)

Darrell Scott was in Knoxville during spring of 2016 to perform with John Prine at the Tennessee Theater, and he stopped by the Blue Plate to share a few tunes with a standing-room-only crowd of fans. We’ve got the whole show and interview here for you to enjoy!

Darrell’s latest album is called “Couchfield Sessions” and is available at He kicks off this show with the first track on that record. This is especially poignant because he mentions his friend Guy Clark, who is featured on the record, and passed away just a few short weeks later.


Darrell Scott will be performing July 30th at the Dancing Bear Lodge Music & Food Festival in Townsend, Tennessee. Click here to get tickets or learn more about this great upcoming event!
