Scotty Almany

A life-long disciple of Rock & Roll, Scotty Almany began writing in independently published zines as a teenager and was first officially published in ARC Magazine in his early twenties. Also a constant figure in his local music scene for 20+ years in many roles, including performer, promotor, sound engineer, and consultant, Scotty took a brief hiatus from writing to pursue a Master of Arts in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Upon completion of his degree, he accepted the position of Digital Resources Manager at the Smithsonian-affiliated Birthplace of Country Music Museum, a role that allows him to combine his education, experience, and love of music and popular culture. He is an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and lives with his wife and their many canine and feline housemates in Bristol, Virginia.
