A laureate guitarist of Richmond, Virginia, Andrew McEvoy has cultivated a distinguished career of performances and musical activities. Andrew considers the mutual respect and support of fellow musicians to be the highest honor he has earned, despite a number of other distinctions.

Andrew’s adolescent and teenage passion for music and the guitar bloomed quickly into professional skills and performances, including a concerto appearance with the Richmond Symphony and performances at Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian Museums.

A Master of Music with emphasis in Guitar Performance and Pedagogy (Teaching), Andrew received scholarships and a special award for outstanding achievement in performance from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a merit scholarship from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University.

Andrew maintains an active schedule touring the mid-Atlantic United States to perform weekly concerts and events. His self-produced recordings are generating a buzz in the Richmond community. Andrew also teaches at Longwood University and Randolph-Macon College, and offers private lessons in the Richmond Area.

Outside of his musical work, Andrew is a skilled cook who enjoys using traditional techniques to provide his family and friends with a variety of ethnic cuisine. He labors earnestly and slowly at home improvement projects, and relaxes by visiting the beautiful Forest Hill and James River Parks near his home.
