Nashville, TN, September 11, 2013The first recording session for what would become Andy’s 2016 CD, “Room for Roots.” Present: Andy May, Kenny Malone (percussion), Jim Rooney (guitar), Jeremy Shearer (bass), and Nathan Smith (engineer).
Everett Allen Lilly, Jim Rooney, and Richard Brown were on the panel for the Everett Lilly Story-telling Session: “Remembering the Lilly Brothers.” Everett’s last CD, the Swift River Music release, “Everett Lilly and Everybody and Their Brother” won the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Association award for “Recorded Event of the Year.” Andy played mandolin and did post-production work on the project.
Andy, Congratulations! I put your CD on tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it. …. As Bill Monroe would have said, “I hope this record does you some good.” There’s a lot of good to be gotten out of it. —Jim Rooneyon Endless Possibilities by Andy May
