Folksinger Scott Alarik’s cause of death has not been revealed, while his sudden death has brought tears to many fans. May he rest in peace.
Scott Alarik was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and became a folksinger shortly after graduating from high school in 1969. For the past 25 years, Alarik has been one of the most prolific and influential folk music writers in the country.
He covered folk for the Boston Globe, contributed regularly to public radio, including seven years as a correspondent for the national news show Here and N.
Scott wrote for many national magazines, including Billboard, Sing Out, and Performing Songwriter. From 1991-97, Alarik was editor and principal writer for the New England Folk Almanac.
His first book, Deep Community: Adventures in the Modern Folk Underground, was published in 2003. Scott made his professional debut as a weekend regular at an oh-so-‘60s coffeehouse called Heads Together.
He also opposed the Vietnam War, joining the Resistance Movement while in high school by publicly refusing to register for the draft. Alarik was convicted of resisting the draft and served 19 months in federal prison.
He was released from prison in 1972 and became a fixture on the national folk circuit, usually performing on A Prairie Home Companion.
Alarik released three vinyl albums and appeared at such legendary venues as the Coffeehouse Extemporé in Minneapolis, Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs, Somebody Else’s Troubles and Earl of Old Town in Chicago, the Speakeasy in Greenwich Village, and the Idler, Godfrey Daniels, and the Cherry Tree in Pennsylvania, Old Vienna, Iron Horse, and Passim in Massachusetts.
Garrison Keillor, Prairie Home Companion host, wrote of Alarik, “I have rarely seen an audience in such a good mood as when he’s just been there.”
