Andrew Finn Magill
“Andrew Magill is a leading fiddler in a new generation of musicians. He plays with incredible versatility and is accomplished in a variety of styles. More important than his technical prowess is the fact that he approaches music with deep insight, sensitivity and respect.”
— Martin Hayes, Irish fiddle master

Andrew Finn Magill is a fiddler/violinist who straddles genres. From Cuban Charanga to traditional Irish and Scottish music, Andrew Finn has toured with a diverse array of ensembles.

Andrew’s background is in traditional Irish music, having been a two-time finalist at the All-Ireland fiddle championships starting when he was just 14. He has performed alongside many Irish luminaries including John Doyle, Liz Carroll, Altan, Flook, Lunasa, and Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill.

“He is very talented and hard working. He’s just an absolute natural” — Brian Conway
He has toured France with Liz Knowles & Kieran O’Hare as part of the international phenomenon Celtic Legends, the U.S. and Canada with the Paul McKenna Band the 2009 Scots Trad Music winners of “Best Up & Coming Band,” and Malawi with music icon Peter Mawanga with whom he co-produced the highly acclaimed concept album Mau a Malawi: Stories of AIDS.

In 2005 he released Drive & Lift, his self-produced debut featuring Grammy-nominees Al Petteway and John Doyle. It received rave reviews in Dirty Linen and Sing Out! magazine and has been featured multiple times on NPR’s The Thistle & Shamrock.

“He is an innovator and composer with clearly his own signature. This is just an awesome debut, which delights one more on each listen.” — Grammy nominee, Liz Carroll

In 2009, Andrew received a Fulbright-MtvU fellowship to create a fundraiser concept album entitled Mau a Malawi: Stories of AIDS, a fusion project with acclaimed Malawian musician and social activist Peter Mawanga.

Jordan Tice
In 21 short years, Jordan Tice and his guitar have gone places that people twice his age can only imagine. Drawing from his roots in bluegrass, studies of jazz and classical composition, and love of traditional music of all types, Jordan synthesizes diverse elements into something new.

Starting with the Allman Brothers and an electric guitar at age 12, Jordan got into bluegrass through his parents who are bluegrass musicians themselves. Bluegrass gave him a medium to develop his craft naturally as well as begin to write his own music. Concurrently, he studied jazz and classical guitar, which helped him develop greater conceptual and technical understanding of the guitar as well as music theory. He is currently a senior music composition major at Towson University on full scholarship where he has written for jazz ensembles as well as classical chamber groups.

He has toured Europe and the US and appeared in concert with Mark Schatz, Frank Wakefield, Darol Anger, Paul Kowert, and Brittany Haas. He has released two albums as a leader on Patuxent Records as well as one as a part of the trio, "Corbett, Chrisman, and Tice" with Wes Corbett on banjo and Simon Chrisman on hammered dulcimer.

In his most recent solo project, "Long Story", Jordan has achieved an engaging, natural, and extremely musical work. Utilizing the talents of Noam Pikelny on banjo, Casey Driessen on fiddle, Andy Hall on dobro, and Mark Schatz on bass, Jordan composed tunes that, as Chris Eldridge writes in the liner notes, "sound and feel natural on bluegrass instruments while gently opening the door to a much wider world of musical influence". "Long Story" is focused yet diverse. Blending memorable melodies with more modern sounds and compositional techniques, Jordan consolidates a large world of musical influence into a collection of music that is complex enough to intrigue musicians across genres while remaining eminently listenable.
