My guest this week is Andy Wood!
Andy spent most of his childhood playing and competing in bluegrass festivals. Touring the bluegrass circuit with his cousin and grandfather provided Andy with the necessary exposure that helped refine and sharpen his skills. Andy and his cousin held various state championship titles.
At the young age of sixteen, Andy finished second in the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MANDOLIN CONTEST in Winfield, Kansas. Currently touring as a solo guitarist and mandolinist along with working on a host of additional musical projects, Andy is also performing live with his own band promoting JUNKTOWN, an album which showcases his vast musical influences and abilities.
The guest this week on The Mandolins and Beer Podcast is Andrew Marlin.
You may be familiar with Andrew from his involvement with Chapel Hill, NC duo Mandolin Orange. As the songwriter for the band, Andrew has become known as a gifted lyricist, producing powerful yet subtle, thoughtfully crafted songs. With Mandolin Orange, Andrew has toured the world, graced famous stages (including the Ryman Auditorium, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Newport Folk Festival, to name just a few), sold thousands of records, and received millions of streams.
