If Jack Scott and Ingrid Rosenback had met earlier, chances are Last Chance may never have happened, given their vastly different respective musical histories. While Ingrid was studying classical music and mastering the violin, learning Bach and Mozart, Jack was listening to folk and rock music, toying with songwriting and teaching himself 5-string banjo. By the time they met, Jack had decided to take his music more seriously and Ingrid was expanding her repertoire and improvisational skills. The two quickly discovered that playing and singing together was not only enormous fun, but also actually sounded good.
In 2011, Jack persuaded Ingrid to join him and become fiddler for Whirled Peas, a Wilmington based band in which both still play. In the following year, they formed Last Chance. As a duo, they perform exclusively original songs. Both sing, Jack plays guitar and 5-string banjo and Ingrid plays fiddle and harmonica.
Last Chance appears throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding counties at festivals, coffee houses, theaters, blues clubs, library events, senior centers, bookstores and other venues. The band is fully insured. Among their many memorable shows, some highlights include performing at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Suzanne Roberts Theater, the Twisted Tail, the Lansdowne Folk Club, Chaplin’s Spring City, Burlap & Bean, Jamey's House of Music, the Queen, the Delmarva Folk Festival and Philadelphia's Hard Rock Cafe. Last Chance proudly participates in the WXPN Musicians on Call program. Last Chance won the 2018 “Folk Hero” contest conducted by the Delaware Friends of Folk. The group's third CD, "Claiming the Sky," released in 2018, as well as "Endless Flight" (2016), and “We Came to Play” (2013) are all available on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and at their concerts. WXPN has played two of their songs, "Same Moon" and "Sacramento." Check the Last Chance You Tube Channel (link below) to see videos from their live performances.
