Veteran singer/songwriter and champion guitarist Andy May has been described as "a troubadour of life" (Walnut Valley Festival).  May infuses his songwriting and shows with his trademark creativity, humor, and consummate musicianship.  His music embraces styles from blues to Bluegrass, old-time country to contemporary folk, traditional reels to roots-rock.

 (Andy May’s) distinct style of writing and performing– with a mixture of warmth, sensitivity and good nature– bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary American music with purity and exuberance. –David Sokol, WRSI

May started performing seriously in his teens, immersed in and part of the ‘60’s Folk Revival in New York’s Greenwich Village. Making a name for himself there as an up-and-coming old-time musician and songwriter, and later in New England as a folk-rock original, May’s reputation has grown to include his extensive work as an educator and mentor. His credentials include playing Carnegie Hall, a Grand Championship on guitar from the legendary Union Grove, NC, Fiddler’s Convention, and creating and presenting, for over 25 years, his Acoustic Kids Showcases. (Video: andymay.com/meet-andy-may)

May’s latest album, Room for Roots, has played nationwide on independent Americana and Country Music radio, with multiple songs charting. The album itself made Roots Music Report’s 2016 “Top Americana Country Album Chart.” May supported the project with stateside performances, including MerleFest in North Carolina, the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, and the Station Inn in Nashville, Tennessee, before taking his music to an International audience at Izzy Young’s Folklore Centrum in Stockholm, Sweden.

…You can feel the salt of life in his songs…. Really, few active songwriters can grab a

listener with small-town stories and sharply cut images like Andy May. –Jamsphere.com

"With the response that Room for Roots has been getting from indie radio and from my peers and fans, as well as the heart-warming response I have been receiving at my live shows, I am excited to continue this adventure and see what’s next!" said May.

May will appear at the Brigham City Fine Arts Center, Friday, August 4, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 ($10 Seniors $8 Students), and are available online, by phone at (435) 723-0740, and at the door. Doors open at 7:00 pm.
