SCOTT KENDALL performed with the Saline Fiddlers from 2001-2006, and loved every second of it. He played in various bands while attending Saline High School and upon graduation, at the suggestion of Saline Fiddlers founder Bob Phillips, studied Bass Performance at Minnesota State University Moorhead. Studying under Alex Pershounin and Brian Roessler helped him discover his love of the double bass. Professors Kirk Moss, Allen Carter, Simon Rowe and Nick Fryer helped to shape his understanding of improvisation, arranging and music theory.
After graduation, Scott moved home to Saline to further his musical career and reclaim his musical roots. Since then, he has performed with numerous bands and ensembles, including Light Out for the Territory , The Great American Pantry Raid, Child Sleep, as well as a blues band, a gospel choir, a chamber quintet, a bluegrass band, the Ypsilanti Symphony Orchestra, and various other bands and musical theater productions.
Scott is astonishingly grateful to the Saline Fiddlers for helping him discover his love of music and performing on stage. If it were not for the Fiddlers, his life would be very different. He is hopeful that someday he will be able to inspire others the way that he was inspired by the Saline Fiddlers.
