One Night Only – Andrew McKnight in Concert at the 1908 Courthouse in Independence, VA


The Arts Council is thrilled and honored to present a very special concert with celebrated folk musician, Andrew McKnight at the Historic 1908 Courthouse in Independence on Friday, March 9th at 7pm. Andrew is an award-winning folk/Americana musician whose musical journey has traced nearly a million miles of blue highways, and earned him a wealth of critical acclaim and enthusiastic fans for his captivating performances and seven recordings. Andrew’s powerful and entertaining show is like one-man theatre, delivered with warmth and down-home comfort. His finely crafted songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, while the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. While his skillful guitar work provides a tasteful foundation, the touches of native American cedar flute, resonator guitar, djembe (African hand drum) and even mandolin add delightful and mesmerizing embellishments to the show.   Admission to the Concert is FREE OF CHARGE – with donations gratefully accepted at the door.
