This Five-Week summer program clinic with Scott Sharrard will a focus on songwriting, with Sharrard also discussing his personal artistic journey, which includes singing, songwriting, producing and arranging, as well as his life as a solo artist.

Scott Sharrard spent nearly a decade as lead guitarist and bandleader to the late Gregg Allman. Their partnership included the Sharrard-penned “Love Like Kerosene,” which Allman covered on 2015’s Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA, and again on Allman’s eighth and final solo album, the posthumous, Grammy-nominated Southern Blood (Rounder Records, 2017). Another Southern Blood track, “My Only True Friend”—cowritten by Sharrard and Allman—earned a Grammy nomination for Americana Song of the Year. The singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer, and arranger has previously released three albums with the Chesterfields before embarking on a series of solo efforts. The Milwaukee native’s latest, Saving Grace, was delivered in 2018 and was followed by international solo tours comprising over 100 dates. Sharrard is now working on his follow up to Saving Grace and continuing to celebrate the Allman musical legacy of elite musicianship in rock, blues, jazz, and Americana with his band Scott Sharrard and Friends.
