Keynote Addresses

Over the past forty years, Scott Ainslie has learned how to ‘spin a yarn,’ as the old mountain people used to say.

His storytelling and public speaking developed as a way of introducing the background and history of the songs he chose to play and to write.

“In presenting a song or an idea, it is good to triangulate on it; to present other information–it’s historical context, a vignette from the author’s life, or our own. You are making a place for the music to live in the hearts of an audience. A little nest.

“And, most importantly, you are raising a question that–in all its mysterious beauty–the music will answer.”

In formal keynote addresses, or informally from the stage, Ainslie has a well-grounded, relaxed, and easy command. Audiences feel comfortable with him at the helm and are free to respond deeply and personally.
