“ Keep rippin' ScruffyFish, great energy and spirit!” ”

— Craig Dickson

Scruffyfish is driven by the traditions of West Africa but has an urban back beat that is created by drums, bass, keys, guitar, flute and other instruments that tempt your sense of hearing.

Scruffyfish emerged from the world of sound.  In the heart of Alberta, a new country music was born.  Global Country World Music. A genre-bending experience of sound that is rooted in the poly-rhythmic beats of West Africa. Blended together through the backbeat of rock and roll & rhythm and blues, melding each song together with hook-filled melodies
