Winter/Spring 2017 Concert Series
Due to illness, Andy McKee has rescheduled his show to Friday, January 27 at 7:30 p.m. Our guest service team will contact ticket holders.
Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra through his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits, and a signature two-handed technique.
McKee’s crossover success has helped him to gain millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most influential artists. He has been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar magazine in the United States and Acoustic magazine in the United Kingdom. He is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters Tours. McKee’s tour dates have taken him through Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America, and has included tours with legendary artists such as Prince and Dream Theater.
Live performances by McKee have become a point of fascination for his loyal followers. So, in late 2015, he decided it was time to release a live album. Featuring tracks from his entire catalog, Live Book was recorded live in December 2015 at the Melting Point in Athens, Georgia; the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth, Georgia; and Workplay in Birmingham, Alabama. McKee went through the recordings from all three performances and selected the finest takes of each set. Reflecting on the song choices, he looks to provide current fans the chance to relive their favorite shows and hopes that he can showcase the energy he creates for those who have not been able to attend his concerts and new fans alike.
“Andy is a great player who puts all these guitar techniques into songs he writes and plays that make them quite interesting. But it’s still all about the song.”—Eric Johnson
“Andy McKee has been launched into the upper stratosphere of the world’s very best acoustic players, and for good reason. His densely melodic and percussive style is mesmerizing to say the least.”—Guitar WorldBack to Concerts
