Product Notes

McKnight's 1995 debut CD introduced folk fans around the world to his literate stories and vivid imagery as well as his smooth expressive tenor and standout guitar playing. Traveler features some of Andrew's best-loved songs, including "Dancing in the Rain" about the plight of an Iowa farm family, a love song from the Old Man Mississippi to his lady love "Atchafalaya", and "Magnolia Tree" detailing his own escape from corporate America. Other highlights include "Highland County Romp" a gorgeous guitar duet with virtuoso Seth Austen, the old-timey tinged "Gatlinburg", and the gentle small-town Americana nostalgia of "Still Home to Me". "a distinct and refreshing voice of life-affirming optimism and pointed social criticism. Employing drums and bass with the occasional mandolin, banjo, and fiddle, in addition to his own excellent guitar playing and expressive tenor, McKnight creates pleasantly energetic music and pensive quiet ballads...very enjoyable." (Matt Fink, All Music Guide) 'like a journey around the rim of a wheel: a touch of traditional, a touch of country, a touch of Celtic, a touch of contemporary. Spokes run down from each to a sweet spot at the hub. In that sweet spot, McKnight combines them all to spin his magic into a new art form -- a kind of 'Blues-grass'... Some music moves into your heart forever. I think of that every time I play the music I loved in the '60's, and still love enough to have on a CD. 'Traveler' is like that.' (Tay Mueller, Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange) "as refreshing as a cool breeze in the Shenandoah Valley he calls home. Summoning up dead-on images of small town and rural America, and both the sense of loss and the sense of survival, McKnight's gentle-country-tinged voice and evocative guitar make for a musical equivalent of a leisurely drive down the back roads" (Bob McWilliams, Flint Hills Special)
