Shannon Scott Journeys

Shannon Scott - Minister of Stories

 

Personalism. Passion. Performance. The "lost art of storytelling," hasn't gone lost on a man called, Shannon Scott. Nor has a sense of great hospitality. Since 1988, Shannon Scott has made his mark as researcher and storyteller, receiving acclaim from multiple story organizations, along with educational and media ones. Pioneering some of the city's very first specialty tours, ranging from architectural, women's history, Civil & Revolutionary War, to ghost and cemetery. Why gamble your hard earned dollar on an event where you don't know who the guide is? Instead, consider paying for the chance to be illuminated and entertained by Savannah's veteran storyist, Shannon Scott! 

Seeking a more mature, adult oriented, substantive and personal kind of ghost tour? Something that goes well beyond the pale? In a number of ways, this is more than just a ghost tour, covering a wide range of subjects, that Shannon Scott has observed personally, which is a huge distinction between Scott's event and other ghost tours simply cashing in on a fad. Shannon even goes so far as to present media along the storypath, which illustrates his close connection to various psychical, spiritual, and occultish oriented events. And yes, all inside of a city called Savannah, Georgia!

If your interests are spirit photography, freemasonry, ESP, Out-of-Body, PSI, human possession, exorcism, vampyre/vampirism, vodou/vodun/voodoo, spirit orb, spook lights, sorcery, witchcraft, remote viewing, UFO, time travel, mediumship and just love great stories about strange characters in great Southern gothic cities, you've more than found your event! Call and talk to Shannon Scott now! 


"This tour was so intense we hired him to help us develop our show from pilot episode on out!" 

                   -- Bob Hughes, Co-Executive Producer, "Scariest Places On Earth." 

"Shannon Scott makes for a compelling spokesperson for these sides of life, originally coming from a realm of non-belief, but Savannah changed all of that. He's really the every man's bard when it comes to this, as he relates to non-believers and believers exactly the same and has empathy for both."

                   -- Darren Keefer, Producer, BBC TV 1

BIO:

Self described, "goth kid" of his high schoool, Shannon Scott grew up in rural, cornfield wrapped, Rantoul, Illinois and has always had a fascination with history, art, cemeteries and the cosmic nature of life. One of his first jobs was as a cemetery caretaker, and here he began to make connections between himself and the greater universe. He developed a natural interest in religion, philosophy and before accepting a scholarship to The Savannah College of Art & Design, to study Fine Arts, had considered pursuing the seminary to expand on these interests.

While in Savannah, he worked as a chef, caterer, tour guide, and at the ripe age of 25 opened his own publishing company, advertising, "For the sake of better information." The same year, Scott became a pioneer in Savannah's ghost tour trade, becoming a bit of a local celebrity, as he took journaling actual ghost events from locals, to a level previously unfulfilled. His view simply, that for all of the ghost hubbub, there was very little, factual information available in the public record, and especially from what had been presented on ghost tours. This made him a fast favorite with tourists, and along the way, consulted and befriended famed parapsychologists, Dr. Andrew Nichols, poltergeist authority, Dr. William Roll, and others like demononlogists, Ed & Lorraine Warren of "The Amityville," and more. 

In 1999, Scott landed a job working as a producer and story researcher on the pilot, and early episodes of the Fox Family TV hit, "Scariest Places On Earth," and began to travel extensively in the name of developing that show and other show episodes for The History Channel, Sci-Fi, WE Network, and others. His work has been featured on a number of programs, including the likes of Ghost Hunters, CMT, CNN, NPR, MTV's FEAR, ABC's Real Scary Stories, etc. Along the way, Scott became jaded to the TV style of ghosts, versus the real way these things worked in life, so abandoned that work, in the name of creating his own documentary, "America's Most Haunted City - Part One," which was his first effort to present a different or more true-to-life, perspective on how families and people really lived with these phenomena in their homes. The film began on the drafting board in 1997, began filming in 2007 and was released in early 2011.

This year marks the beginning to the new leg of his life journey with the opening of Shannon Scott Tours, that includes a daytime history tour of Bonaventure Cemetery called Bonaventure Cemetery Journeys.
