Like his ancestors before him, Gazoon Wazoo is supposed to be practicing for the terrifying Walk across The Wire between the towering peaks of Mount Lanadoon. Instead, he's been playing his shnookimer and making up songs with his special ekko and a poetry-writing Princess. Can one boy's love of music outsmart the angry Winds, defeat wily Lord Grot and bring balance and safety to the Kingdom?

THE GREAT GAZZOON - A Tall Tale With Tunes & Turbulence - is a dramatized musical audio novel on 4 CDs with 40-page illustrated songbook. A folk tale by veteran folkie Rick Scott, it's the epic story of how one boy's love of music overcomes his fear and transforms his community, told through narration, poetry, spoken word, dialogue and song.

The story unfolds as audio cinema over 60 chapters and three and a half hours on 3 CDs, dramatized by Rick Scott and 25 actors, singers and musicians. CD 4 contains complete and embellished versions of 15 songs from the story, and is also available separately as GAZZOON TUNES.

THE GREAT GAZZOON includes a 44 page illustrated book of lyrics and poems from the story, illustrated with 48 original paintings by Linda Sanborn, who just retired from teaching Art and English literature at C.E.G.E.P. Heritage College in Gatineau, Quebec.

Over 35 yearsaward winning singe/songwriter Rick Scott has performed over 1000 shows in 9 countries. His eight children's CDs have been honored with three Juno nominations and Parents' Choice, Our Choice, NAPPA Gold, iParenting, Children's Music web and Canadian Folk Music Awards.

DULCIMER NOTES:
Rick made up and played all the music for this story on Appalachian mountain dulcimer, which traditionally has 3 or 4 strings tunes to two notes like a shnookimer.

For this recording he played many different dulcimers: 3-string strumstick, 4-string standard and soprano, 6-string tenor & bass and solid body electric (electric snowshoe); in many different ways: plucked & strummed, bowed & E-bowed, hannered & slide; in several different tunings: D-A-D, D-B-A-D, D-G-D and D-G-C.

Rick's standard, tenor & bass dulcimers built by JR Stone in Boone, NC.
The Electric Snowshoe built by Paul Iverson in Vancouver, BC.
Rick built his tiny soprano dulcimer in 1971 in Storm Bay, BC.
Strumsticks are made by Bob McNally in Hibernia, NJ.
