Andy May brings his own warm brand of Americana to Roanoke’s venerable 3rd Street Coffeehouse to help get you through February!
Dubbed “a troubadour of life” by the Walnut Valley Festival, veteran singer/songwriter and champion guitarist Andy May infuses his songwriting and his shows with his trademark creativity, humor, and consummate musicianship. His music embraces styles from blues to bluegrass, old-time country to contemporary folk, traditional reels to roots-rock.
” (Andy May is) a fine vocalist and an exceptional guitarist and mandolinist. His distinct style of writing and performing– with a mixture of warmth, sensitivity and good nature has won him friends and admirers. He bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary American music with purity and exuberance.” –David Sokol, WRSI
Andy has seven CDs of mostly original music on the Swift River Music label and has written for many Nashville recording projects. Andy’s 2016 release, “Room for Roots,” and his original song, “The Woman in the Wings,” earned spots on Roots Music Report‘s “Top Americana Country” Album Chart and Song Chart, respectively, in both 2016 and 2017. Andy’s new project, a collaboration with banjo legend, Curtis McPeake, is due out in March of 2018.
