Andy May - Endless Possibilities - cover

Walnut Valley Festival: “Endless Possibilities” by Andy May

…Top notch instrumentation …by Andy as well as a cast including some of Nashville’s first call musicians…. My favorite of all the tracks had to be the title cut, “Endless Possibilities.” …The song is as smooth as a gentle summer breeze.   Rex Flottman, Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield) program, on Endless Possibilities by Andy May

Andy May – “Endless Possibilities”

Endless Possibilities, Andy’s latest CD, is a collection of thirteen original songs — it’s quintessential Andy May.

For Endless Possibilities, Andy dug down into his songwriting catalog for some old tunes, like Noah and Curtains Made of Rain and added them to a bunch of newer pieces and songs, like Old Dog and So-‘n’-So,  written with his wife, Lauren LeCroy May. Joining Andy on these tracks are some truly great players—some of the finest on the planet— including legendary pedal steel guitarist, Hal Rugg, to whose memory the CD is dedicated.

Allan Block: Fiddler, Poet, Sandal-maker

My friend, Allan Block, was a colorful person – very much an individual. He was a great fiddler, a fine musician, and a wonderful poet and leather craftsman. His sandal-making shop was an established part of New York City’s West Village for many years. And on Saturday afternoons, it became the meeting place for one of the best Old-Time Music jam sessions in the Northeast USA. Allan had high standards when it came to his music. But he was also kindhearted, which meant that younger players like me and my friend Kenny Kosek could find a place in the mix of players at his shop on Saturday afternoons and, as Bill Monroe might have said, “be part of something.”
