of Feb 28, Monday concert held at INSTITUTE OF MUSICAL TRADITIONS
Andrew McKnight & Jonathan Byrd CD Releases
We regret that tonight's concert has been cancelled because of the weather
It will be rescheduled at a future date.
Environmental engineer-turned-songwriter Andrew McKnight
His latest album, Turning Pages looks towards the landscape of the heart
and soul. Among this collection of stories, reflections and letters can be found
his Diary of Thomas Jefferson (and his longtime slave mistress Sally Hemings),
a bluesy ode to Hoagy Carmichael and the haunting Road to Appomattox.
As a winner of the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Jonathan Byrd,
is following in the footsteps of such previous finalists as Lyle Lovett, Nancy
Griffith, and Shawn Colvin.
He is a songwriter whose music is rooted in a
love of the traditional tunes of his native North Carolina and whose simple
tales of love and death make a surprising impact as new songs that sound
old. Jonathan will be celebrating the release of "The Sea and The Sky", a
CD he released with Dromedary.
