Unquestionably, one of the most exciting guitarists I’ve seen in the last few years is Andy Mckee.
McKee is one of those players, much like Guy Buttery (featured in my “30 South African Bands You Should Hear” entry), who’s percussive, unorthodox fingerstyle method of playing inspires everyone who is lucky enough to see it live.
In my opinion, Andy is one of the most innovative and exciting guitarists to emerge in years. Still in his 20’s, Andy has developed a mastery of the 6-string guitar and the harp guitar that is, quite frankly, intimidating to say the least.
The below song, Rylynn, is taken from his 2005 album, “Art of Motion”, and I strongly recommend you check it out.
