Guitarist Andy McKee has earned a reputation as an accomplished contemporary guitarist.

Andy McKee has made a name for himself due to his impressive finger-style guitar playing, Youtube videos that have been viewed by millions and ongoing tributes to the late Michael Hedges, a guitarist whose name and innovative techniques McKee keeps alive.

Today on HPR we get a chance to speak with a young guitarist touring the state for his second time. Andy McKee returns for a three island tour starting tonight in Honolulu, and spoke with All Things Considered local host Dave Lawrence. A musician who largely was discovered on Youtube,  McKee is fortunate to have attracted the attention of some noteworthy artists along the way, and pays tribute to others through his work.

Here are some videos featuring Andy's music:
