Another fast & furious – and wonderful – MerleFest. Andy played the Cabin Stage, The Songwriter’s Coffeehouse, a community outreach show at a local school, and led 4 Youth workshops! We have photos on FaceBook!
All of us down at Mt. Pleasant Middle School …remember your show as being one of the best we’ve ever had. …It’s hard to hold the attention of middle school kids, and you and your band certainly did the trick.
—Camille Allen, Mt. Pleasant Middle School of the Visual and Performing Arts, TN
Andy May has tremendous respect among traditional musicians nationwide. [He] has developed a program that … is devoted to the preservation of American traditional music. …The materials presented in his performances work well with the PBS documentary series “American Roots Music”….
—Hayden Roberts, Tennessee Arts Commission, Arts Education Director
I thoroughly endorse and encourage your continued work in this area, and I think you’re uniquely situated to help implement future programming of this sort. Every school should be lucky enough to benefit from it.
