Scott Newton is an avid observer and photographer who has chronicled the evolution of the music scene in Austin, Texas, since 1970. His photos adorn the rooms of The W Hotel Austin, the Keller-Pfluger Gallery at the Moody Theater, Fry’s Electronics, Demand Media and many other venues and spaces around the city. In 2010, Scott’s Austin City Limits photographs were exhibited for six months at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. He also is a published author, with several books to his name including the recently re-published Austin City Limits—A History in Photographs.
Scott will present a unique glimpse into his time photographing such greats as Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and Tina Turner, and talk about the early days of the Armadillo World Headquarters, his time serving as house photographer for the Austin Opera House in the 1970s and his current role as the official photographer of Austin City Limits—a position he has held for the past 36 years.
