About Andy McKee


Andy McKee is widely considered to be one of the finest acoustic guitar players of all time. His unique style and approach to the instrument have garnered him worldwide attention, established him as a pioneer of modern acoustic music, and have put him on stage with some of the most iconic musicians of the last several decades including Prince, Dream Theater, Eric Johnson, Tommy Emmanuel, and more. Most commonly known for his technical prowess, use of progressive fingerstyle methods, and soulful songwriting, Andy brings unparalleled youthful energy to his guitar performance and musical compositions. While Andy incorporates boundary-pushing techniques such as two-hand-tapping, partial capos, slap harmonics, alternate tunings, percussive hits, and more, he never loses focus on the importance of song structure and melody. Andy’s technical abilities combined with his sensibilities as a songwriter elevate him above the rest. In addition to his expertise as a performer, Andy is also a committed educator with decades of experience teaching guitar, both in-person and online. When he’s not touring the globe, Andy calls Topeka, KS his home and has been teaching at ArtistWorks since June 2022.
