Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
Andrew's solo performances are a bit like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. He delivers his masterfully crafted cinematic vignettes of rural Americans and their struggles in memorable melodies and compelling twists of phrase. With his epic Civil War ballad 'The Road to Appomattox', the uplifting messages of 'Good Things Matter' (Great American Song Contest Winner), and his haunting anti-mountaintop mining song 'Made by Hand', audiences are spellbound from the first to the final note.
