Andrew McKnight

"blends wry and romantic stories with keen tuneful observations
in a delicious mix of folk, blues and bluegrass... a man not to be missed!"
-The National Theater

"Pick your favorite poet or balladeer and McKnight will equal them
with an Appalachian soul"
- Victory Review

"this brilliant guitar player brought those (Blue Ridge) mountains with him...
Relating story after story and song after song, often combining his interest in geography,
history and a keen eye for the human spirit, Andrew presented a night overflowing
with fantastic original material which could only be rated with Blue Ribbons,
5-Stars and a couple of thumbs up." - Tidewater Friends of Folk Music

Shenandoah singer/songwriter creates a diverse southern " 'mountain gumbo' brand
of music that mixes folk, blues and bluegrass in one appealing and energetic sound"
- Norwich Bulletin

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.
