Andy Thorn | Deering Live Shorts

by Jamie Latty

A few weeks back, we had progressive Leftover Salmon banjoist Andy Thorn on the show. 

Andy is a killer player who continues to push the banjo envelope. Hailing from North Carolina, Andy honed his skills in a scene that included players such as Ryan Cavanaugh and Rex McGee. In time, Andy moved out to Colorado and waded deep into the Colorado jamgrass scene, eventually landing the banjo chair in Leftover Salmon which he has held for over a decade. 

This episode of Deering Live was a really fun one. Andy is so relaxed in his home, and he discusses his beginnings on the banjo, moving out to Colorado and his awesome Deering Crossfire electric banjo.
