Reports from HPR's Dave Lawrence

Andy McKee - Acoustic In The Islands


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:

This video features Andy on the long running German music TV show Rockpalast in 2012:

Finally, for perspective, a track by Andy's favorite guitarist who heavily influenced his playing style, the late Michael Hedges:
