"It’s not terribly difficult for an individual or a duo to sit down and play a song on an acoustic guitar and be entertaining. To do an entire evening and keep it fresh and invigorating is another story. I have no doubt that either Andrew and Zach would excel on their own in this regard but having them together, accompanying each other with drums, mandolin, flat steel guitar and pitch perfect harmonies was just spectacular."

Andrew Smith's latest CD 'THE WORLD HAS WINDOWS' is a singer-songwriter collection including the award-winning 'Rite of Passage' plus two new tap-style acoustic guitar instrumentals.

In 2007 Andrew Smith played at the INTERNATIONAL GUITAR FESTIVAL in Dresden Germany (to rave reviews). The festival featured a dozen great guitar players from around the world including Peter Finger and Frank Haunschild. He also travelled to Africa with a film crew - commissioned to write and record a tap style instrumental piece for the documentary film 'An Orphan's Dream'.

Andrew won the KERRVILLE NEW FOLK SONGWRITING COMPETITION on the strength of his songs 'Holes in the Night Sky' and 'Rite of Passage'

'Rite of Passage' received Honourable Mention at the MID ATLANTIC SONG CONTEST, and was short-listed for the INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING CONTEST.

'Do You Like It?' received Honourable Mention at the 2007 SINGER-SONGWRITER AWARDS.

Andrew's solo instrumental CD 'escape velocity' won him the OKANAGAN INSTRUMENTALIST OF THE YEAR award and received two nominations from 'JUST PLAIN FOLKS' MUSIC AWARDS, and 'The Pilgrimage' was short-listed for the INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING CONTEST.
