KFAI is pleased to sponsor the return of the astonishingly dexterous acoustic guitarist Andy McKee to the Cedar Cultural Center on Thursday, November 21, at 7:30 pm., touring behind his latest release, Joyland.

Andy McKee’s acoustic guitar can approximate the polyrhythmic interplay of a percussion ensemble, the harmonic sweep of a string section, the dazzling runs of a bluegrass doghouse bass-and-banjo duo, and virtually anything else his pastoral compositions and tasteful covers require.

In 9 years and 5 records, he’s written an oeuvre that inspires and intrigues music fans globally, and his fans-first commitment makes him a worldwide ambassador for a new era in acoustic virtuosity.

Recently he’s garnered plum exposure playing with Prince in sold-out arena shows in Australia as a featured soloist and special guest member of Prince’s extraordinary live band.
