Singer/songwriter, guitarist, and now author Andrew McKnight has spent the past quarter century as a full-time performing artist at festivals and intimate concert venues across the U.S. Hailing from the historic village of Lincoln, Virginia, Andrew also teaches guitar and songwriting, offers a variety of school and adult programs and workshops, and is a consultant for people learning to use DNA for genealogy and family history research. 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 ten recordings. The singer, writer, guitarist, and storyteller usually tours solo, but also has spent much of the last decade with founding Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member Les Thompson fronting their genre-bending quartet Beyond Borders. His music is heard on broadcast and internet radio around the world, and he’s been a featured guest on the NPR/PRI syndicated Art of the Song and River City Folk shows.
