I just found this old photo from many years ago. It's more applicable than ever, as today I was working on playing two dunun drums (African bass drums) with my feet while playing guitar, singing, and playing a Pervian flute! heeheee!

Andrew Dahl-Bredine is a singer-songwriter and musician from Silver City, New Mexico. He makes his living performing, teaching, writing songs, working with kids through music and nature, and living and rediscovering a life closely intertwined with the wild natural world. Check out the music!
“An Evening with Andrew is one of the most enjoyable concerts we have presented since our Center’s opening. The concert was like a breath of fresh air or a cool drink of spring water, it transported us so delighfully from our everyday lives. Our audience was drawn in not only by Andrew’s uncanny and wide variety of musical abilities, his original and superior songwriting, his fluidity in several languages , but mainly his honest connection and rapport with everyone in the room. Everyone -young and old -hung on his every breath the length of the 2 hour performance. We are certain to invite Andrew Dahl-Bredine back every season to the Center for the Arts.” - Laura Moore, Executive Director, Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts
Through his recordings and performances, and his everyday work with kids, music, and the natural world, Andrew seeks to uncover and express what it is to be a human being; to heal, to communicate truthfully, to feel joy and sadness, to be together and alone, and to explore what it might mean to live in balance.
"There's something so foreign, so exotic and unusual in his sound, and in his lyrics; yet somehow he leaves the audience feeling so at home, so comfortable, so close..." - Nena Garcia, Acoustic Review
