Scott Balsai is an fingerstyle acoustic guitarist from Pocatello, Idaho. He spent his first 27 years in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania before through hiking the Appalachian Trail and then heading west. A guitarist his whole life, Scott didn’t begin recording his music until the late 1990s. His third and latest album Reflections of Maple and Mahogany: A Musical Diary includes original compositions that span the last 35 years. Scott was visiting Pennsylvania this summer and stopped by Lancaster for a chat about his latest album and his musical journey.
