Wimberley Concert Association Presents Guitarist Andrew Hardin with Special Guests

Lutheran Church of the Resurrection
101 Spoke Hill Road
Wimberley, Texas
"Wielding a un-processed, direct- to-the-board Takamine dreadnaught onstage, Hardin balances transparent song support with impassioned soloing that significantly raises the emotional ante of Russell's story-songs." David Hamburger, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, March 2006

Andrew Hardin currently lives in Wimberley after a twenty-year residence in New York City. A veteran of many country, rock, and blues acts throughout the 70ís, he accompanied acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom Russell on the road and in the studio from the early eighties until 2005. He was co-producer on many of Russell's CDs, including the 2002 release Modern Art. He has appeared with Russell twice on Late Night with David Letterman, and on tours with John Prine and Nanci Griffith. Andrew's stunning fretwork can also be heard on Nanci Griffith's DVD Winter Marquee, on Eliza Gilkyson's CD, Lost and Found, as well as on Russellís current release, Love and Fear.       

Andrew has released several solo albums. His latest, Blue Acoustic, features  improvised acoustic guitar duets with songwriters Tom Russell, Dave Alvin, Don Edwards, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and bassist Washtub Jerry. It was recorded on locations throughout the Southwest. Also available are Just Like This Train, from 2002, and a remixed and remastered Coney Island Moon, featuring legendary guitar virtuoso Albert Lee.

Andrew's guitar style incorporates influences as diverse as Roy Buchanan, Clarence White, Ry Cooder, Gabby Pahinui, and Grady Martin; that is to say it contains elements of blues, country, tropical, and Spanish-flavored music.

Guitar Player Magazine sang his praises: "With elements of Mark Knopfler, Clarence White, and Chet Atkins evident in his playing, Andrew impresses me most with his clean, melodic acoustic soloing that is electrifyingly high on emotion. He is one of the finest players in the country."

Suggested donation for the concert is $6 for adults. Children are admitted free with a supervising adult. Students are always welcomed at no charge.
