Rustic Poet, Contemporary Songwriter and Storyteller

Environmental engineer-turned-singer/songwriter Andrew McKnight
is a high energy crowd pleaser for audiences from intimate unplugged
house concerts to large festival stages. Equal parts Shenandoah Valley
storyteller and poet blended with ever-present strains of the historian,
geographer and naturalist, his rurally-based music reflects an oral history
built on the past while firmly musically rooted in the present.

a night overflowing with fantastic original material which could only be rated
