Keller Williams united three of the best pickin’ Andys he knows—Andy Thorn from Leftover Salmon and Andy Falco and Andy Hall from the Infamous Stringdusters—for a laid back, fun-in-the-sun set at this year’s Northwest String Summit. Williams brought his trademark sense of humor, wicked guitar playing, and uber-talented cadre of Andrews to Oregon’s picturesque Horning’s Hideout as part of the 17th-annual iteration of the popular bluegrass and Americana festival. With a backdrop of trees swaying in the hot summer breeze, Keller and his army of Andys mixed slick licks and silly songs, bringing smiles to the faces in the crowd.
Covering everything from classics from Keller’s own catalog like “Portapotty” and “Broken Convertible” to hits from the Grateful Dead, The Band, Joe Walsh, Peter Rowan, and even an all-whistling rendition of the “Andy Griffith Theme Song,” the players offered up a cheeky, if not outright hilarious, set for the Northwest String Summit crowd. Check out some of the highlights from this delightful set of tunes below!
