Notes from the Road : Andrew Finn Magill (July 2017)

Howdy from Alaska! I am finishing a great week here in Fairbanks, Alaska teaching and performing at the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, which truly must be heard to believed. This festival is astoundingly diverse (from Afro-Cuban to Irish) and yet one more reason to come to this astoundingly beautiful state.. cue photos below:

Before Alaska I was teaching at the Swannanoa Gathering's Celtic WeekFiddlekids in Berkeley CA, and playing a nice tour in Maine. Here's a clip from the "Maine Event," filmed live at the Maine Music Mill on 7/1/2017 by Jared Morneau and recorded by Jeb Enoch:

Ok now, I have some very big news..............(drumroll)

I have a recording contract!!

You all are the first to know I'll be releasing my fifth album Canta Violino! on Ropeadope Records spring 2018! I'm humbled and still buzzing from this :) I'll be posting teaser bits until the end of the year so folllow me on Facebook.

Ropeadope is a record label with an amazing roster of artists and a 21st century business model built on collaboration. Curious? Read this interview to learn more about said model.

Their artists have included grammy-winners Snarky PuppyEddie Palmieri, and fellow Ashevillian Jonathan Scales among many others. It's a true privilege to be in such immensely talented company!
