Singer-songwriter Scott Ibex will bring an eclectic variety of music, from what he dubs psychedelic bluegrass to acoustic tapping/fingerstyle guitar to his unique blend of reggae-infused acoustic rock, to Great Bend on Saturday, Feb. 18. The Barton County Arts Center, 1401 Main Street, will host Ibex in concert, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Seats are $10 and may be purchased at the door or tickets will be available in advance at A440 Musical Instruments, 2008 Forest Ave., Great Bend.
Ibex is most certainly an original. As a self-taught musician drawing from a variety of musical influences, he first fell in love with song at the age of 6 when he learned violin. By the age of 10, he was performing classical piano at recitals, and at 14 he picked up guitar and never looked back. After learning bass, drums, and finding his vocal soul at 15, a songwriter who would one day perform multiple instruments on his own rock album was born.
In May of 2006, Ibex released his debut album, At Love’s New Dawn, and shortly after recorded a well-received folk album 1968 at Glass Owl Records.
