Tony Denikos and Andrew McKnight

September 8, 2018

We're thrilled to welcome back Americana artist Tony Denikos to the Sevareid House - this time with his compadre Virginia Singer-Songwriter Andrew McKnight. If we're real lucky we'll get the chance to hear some of their collaborative work and Tony will break out the Dobro!


If you've seen one of Tony's appearances at The Sevareid House or around town, you know that his special connection with audiences is one of the reasons why he is one of the DC/Baltimore area's fan favorites. You also know that he is a life-long friend and talented songwriter who's work has won him national recognition with songwriting awards and an international following for his recorded work. He has participated in some of the area's most popular collaborative projects (See the Newmyer Flyer production of Time Love's a Hero - A Little Feat Tribute coming to the Birchmere on 12/1/18!) in recognition of his vocal and interpretive talents AND he hosts a monthly songwriter's showcase at the Music Cafe in Damascus, MD.


Since permanently leaving his corporate environmental engineering career in 1996, award-winning folk/Americana artist Andrew McKnight's musical journey has traced nearly a million miles of blue highways, and earned him a wealth of critical acclaim and enthusiastic fans for his captivating performances and seven

recordings. Andrew's solo performances are powerful and entertaining one-man theatre, delivered with warmth and down-home comfort. He weaves his finely-crafted songs and nimble flatpicking together with humorous stories and poetic drama, while the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, spooky slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, and rustic folk. While his skillful guitar work provides a tasteful foundation, the touches of native American cedar flute, resonator guitar, djembe (African hand drum) and even mandolin add delightful and mesmerizing embellishments to the show.

Over his 20-year career he has enjoyed many accolades within the folk music world; a Formal Showcase Artist at Folk Alliance International (FAI), Southeast (SERFA) and Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) conferences, a Performing Songwriter Top 12 DIY selection, and finalist in the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, Kerrville New Folk and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist competitions. We're excited to introduce Andrew to our community of music lovers at The Sevareid House!
