Music Spotlight – Ledfoot, Tim Scott McConnell.

Tim plays Gothic Blues, his own form of raw and brutally honest music. He has a rare and immediate voice which he accompanies mostly only with a 12 string played with a sizzling slide. Tim Scott McConnell’s interview takes us from the deep south where, after he grew up in a trailer park, he played in local bands before leaving for New York and creating the house band at CBGB with a member of the New York Dolls. He was signed to Island and a number of other major record labels. Bruce Springsteen is a fan and popularised one of his songs, ‘High Hopes’. Tim lives in Norway and has a new record out called ‘White Crow’, under his artist name, Ledfoot.
