Scott McDonald, guitarist and vocalist, has been performing for over 30 years. One of his earliest influences was Lindsey Buckingham and his unique style of singing and rhythmic guitar playing. Having worked with the members of Tusk over the years in various other projects, his cohesion with the players evolved and strengthened to where they are today. Some of his recent accomplishments included winning the 2010 Lehigh Valley Singer/Songwriter Acoustic Contest and winning the coveted slot of being the lead singer in the first “House Band” for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs Minor League Baseball team.

Kim Williams

Keys, Vocals

Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kim Williams has spent decades honing her craft, deftly switching from rhythm section to solid lead player without missing a beat. Hearing and replicating tight vocal harmonies, a hallmark of the Fleetwood Mac sound, is no problem for this choral music enthusiast. Classically trained on piano and voice, a huge fan of 70s classic and southern rock, and raised on country, classical, and the Great American Songbook, Kim uses all of her influences, years of training, and natural instincts to bring the music of Christine McVie and Fleetwood Mac to appreciative audiences across the country. While performing an 80-90 date schedule with Tusk, Kim also managed a 25-year public school music teaching career, educating hundreds of middle school orchestra students, taught piano and strings privately from her home, and conducted a Saturday morning community orchestra until Tusk’s further growth left her little choice but to focus solely on touring. In her spare time, Kim enjoys yoga, gardening, diy/home design, and spending time with her husband and their two cats.
