      What was your favorite part of the performance? Our favorite part was the comments section. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the songs Andrew was singing. There were audience members from all over. We were not able to see the video or hear the audio, but we are glad if it was an enjoyable evening for the others.

      I enjoy not just Andrew's singing and playing but the variety of the songs; always some that are new (to me) and interesting to listen to.

      Hope this is not repeat. My third attempt to write a comment. We managed to watch the whole show and Madeline was wonderful way to kick it off. Tell her it was snowing here as she performed. Vidcast was much better viewing with IPad connection to AppleTV device. Video was great but had an Audio fading issue on occasion. Again have a great Christmas and a Happy and prosperous 2017.

"Stretching across the landscape of American folk music is a highway paved by Guthrie and Dylan... now Virginia native Andrew McKnight takes his turn smoothing down the blacktop" - Performing Songwriter


Since permanently leaving his corporate environmental engineering career in 1996, award-winning folk and Americana artist Andrew McKnight's musical journey has traced nearly a million miles of blue highways, and earned him a wealth of critical acclaim and enthusiastic fans for his captivating performances and 7 recordings.


He usually tours solo, but also performs frequently with founding Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member Les Thompson fronting their genre-bending quartet Beyond Borders. He is also an insightful essayist and poet, a gifted workshop leader, and a warm and thoughtful interview.


Taking his cue from the lyrics of his award-winning song "Good Things Matter", he often shares his talents both on the road and close to home near northwestern Virginia's Blue Ridge to help "neighbors in need". Whether aiding people living on the margins with food drives at concerts, singing for and about workers and communities displaced by mountaintop removal coal mining, or introducing children to music and creativity, he has seen up close the power of music to help others. His empathy and curiosity span a wide range of subjects, from the vulnerability of an illegal immigrant woman (“These Shoes”) to imagining what words Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings might have written about their lives together (“Diary”).


Andrew’s solo performances are 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. While his guitar is clearly the foundation, the touches of native American cedar flute, djembe (African hand drum) and even mandolin add delightful and mesmerizing embellishments to the show.
