Green Chilli Roots are delighted to be welcoming back Amy Andrews to York for a headlining gig following her appearance supporting Fargo Railroad Co last November.
Born in Baltimore and raised on the Chesapeake Bay, Amy was brought up on the sounds of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, The American Songbook, and Motown, but spent years training for a career in musical theatre before writing her own music and taking to the road.
After an auspicious move to Atlanta, GA, which served as her home base for the better part of a decade, Amy is now based back home in the mid-Atlantic – a welcome respite for this troubadour, who is on the road for 150+ shows and 52 weeks out of the year.
A wildly talented artist known for brilliant performances, stunning vocals, and unassuming wit and candor on stage, Amy has received national (US) press, chatted with radio and tv hosts across the country (US), and toured extensively across the States and Canada – with festivals and shows in big cities and long-forgotten gold rush towns from Florida’s 30A Songwriter Festival to Alaska’s Folk Festival, and shared stages and support for artists from Gregory Alan Isakov, Rose Cousins, Stu Larsen, Joseph Arthur, Glen Phillips and Toad the Wet Sprocket, Levi Lowrey and Clay Cook (of Zac Brown Band and John Mayer), and more.
Support will come from York’s own Dan Webster and the gig will commence at 9pm at The Last Drop Inn in York. This is a pay as you wish gig so advance tickets are not available.
