Andrew quietly took to the stage, giving his rotary horn speaker a push into motion. He began playing what seemed broken melodies on his violin into his loop machine. As you suspended belief that the melodies could possibly work, or fit together in some way, you’d realize Andrew was thinking 4 or 5 layers ahead.

Between his precise and intricate violin playing and his sweet whistling, this was a live performance to behold. However much I enjoyed his latest recording, Noble Beast, he’s another musician who comes into his own on stage. Go check him out if your into folky stuff - he’s well worth witnessing!
