A Lil’ Bit of Key West: Scott Kirby

Join us for a night of family fun with Scott Kirby – coming all the way from Key West! Enjoy delicious food and refreshing beverages from Bartolotta’s DK Express, raffle prizes, and more – all complemented by the amazing view of Lake Michigan and the downtown skyline from Discovery World.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, storyteller, sailor, and road warrior are all words that aptly describe Scott Kirby. Influenced by such greats as Jimmy Buffet, Kirby is a creative lyricist and accomplished finger-style acoustic guitarist. Kirby describes himself as a direct descendant of the 70s singer/songwriter movement. Over the years, Kirby has shared the stage with Carole King, Jimmy Buffett, Livingston Taylor, Tom Rush, Mac McAnally, Peter Mayer, and others. When not on the road or performing in Key West, Kirby splits his time between Livingston, Montana, and the coast of New Hampshire, where he can often be found sailing – a lifelong passion of this descendant of Newfoundland fisherman.
