Scott Alarik Death: Folksinger, Scott Alarik is dead, Cause of Death

Scott Alarik Death – Cause of Death: Folksinger, Scott Alarik has passed away. “It’s an enormous and unexpected loss for the Boston folk music community, and for people who care about folk music and folk music history everywhere,” Alastair Moock wrote.

He has been the principal folk music writer for the Boston Globe since 1986. He is also a frequent contributor to Sing Out! the Folk Music Magazine, and was folk critic for the public radio program “Here and Now” for seven years.

The announcement of the Folksinger’s death was flooded by heartfelt tributes and condolences. His cause of death was not disclosed.

“I am truly and deeply saddened to hear about the death of Scott Alarik,” Winifred Horan wrote. “He was a friend. He was the real deal. Writer, musician, singer, folklorist, author and broadcaster. He knew his music and he knew his politics.”

“He wrote for the Boston Globe for many years, mostly as a music critic, which took an incredible amount of bravery in that he was himself a singer and writer,” Garnet Rogers shared. “His songs were great, his singing, inspired, and no one could touch him as a performer.”

“In later years he has been one of the sharpest, most incisive thinkers and commentators on American politics, whose posts here on Facebook have been a kind of pole star for me. I can’t believe he’s gone. What a damned hard day,” he wrote.
