Recent East Coast Music Award winner for “Instrumental Recording of the Year,” St. John’s, Newfoundland’s Duane Andrews serves as not merely a guitar player, but a continuation of history. His use of traditional folk, jazz and classical styles effortlessly plot a scene, voice dialogue, and peak before concluding and exiting the song in an entirely elegant manner. Andrews is, in my opinion, the epitome of what instrumental music should be. Simply playing your instrument should not give excuse to lack the creative power to tell a story, no matter the interpretation. It is in doing such that I make my original statement of continuing the history; even if most all of which I know nothing of.
