Millions of people worldwide have watched YouTube videos of Andy McKee performing his two-handed technique on both steel string and harp guitars.

But now, who needs a video when you can watch a acoustic guitar phenomenon live?

McKee is touring in support of his album, “Live Book,” and will stop in Grand Junction on Saturday, Nov. 19, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $20–$25.

“Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists,” according to andymckee.com.

“His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique,” the website said.

“Live Book” was recorded last December at The Melting Point in Athens, Georgia, the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth, Georgia, and Workplay in Birmingham, Alabama. The album features tracks from McKee’s entire catalog.

McKee appeared in Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the United States and Acoustic Magazine in the United Kingdom, “and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours,” the bio says. He has toured through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, among them “tours with legendary acts including Prince and Dream Theater.”

He has achieved “millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists.”

Tickets can be purchased at mesatheater.com. Call 773-1775 for information.
