Andrew McKnight returns again to the hometown of his grandparents and his father for an intimate house concert. Join us for music, storytelling and a warm fireplace on a cold evening.
Andrew is a nationally-acclaimed singer/songwriter and guitarist who celebrates rural America, weaving his masterfully crafted songs, humorous stories and poetic drama into a musical soundscape sketched with shades of Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, and rustic folk.
His recent exploits using genealogy and genetics to find and then visit Irish relatives have added a new dimension to his storytelling and have inspired him musically as well.
Andrew has performed at many prestigious venues including the Kennedy Center, the International Storytelling Center and the Atlanta Olympics, has been part of the Rocky Mountain, South Florida, Boston and Delmarva Folk Festival lineups, and a guest on NPR’s “Art of the Song” and “River City Folk” shows. He is a gifted workshop leader, an engaging speaker, and a longtime endorsing artist for Elixir Strings and Fairbuilt Guitars.
